Dr ALEJANDRO ROMERO-RUIZ
Post Doctoral Scientist
Net Zero and Resilient Farming
Alejandro is a postdoctoral scientist in the agroecosystem modelling group. He obtained his PhD from the University of Lausanne in 2021, in which he studied the impact of soil compaction on soil hydraulic and mechanical properties at the plot scale by combining hydrological modeling and field monitoring of geophysical data.
His current research focuses on quantifying the environmental impacts of soil compaction in grasslands resulting from animal treading. He is developing a framework for modeling soil compaction in response to management to systematically predict the associated dynamics of soil properties and how they influence soil's hydrology and related biological processes.
