Summary:

I am a soil scientist interested in the interaction between soil carbon and soil physical properties, how these are affected by the way in which soils are managed, and how they impact upon other soil functions.

 

Areas of interest

 

  • Soil carbon and physical properties under arable, permanent grassland and perennial bioenergy crop systems

 

  • Land-use change impacts on soil carbon and soil physical properties

 

  • Biochemical compounds (‘biomarkers’) to link plant inputs to soil carbon

 

  • Soil structure: aggregation and pore networks

 

  • Soil hydraulic functions: water retention and conductivity

 

  • Soil deformation and impacts on soil water retention and gaseous emissions

 

  • Soil resilience: resistance and recovery from stresses
