Portrait of Marie Spohn.

Marie Spohn is a professor of the biogeochemistry of forest soils since 15 maj 2020. Her inauguration lecture has the title "Element cycling in terrestrial ecosystems".

In her research, Marie Spohn explores the cycling of carbon, phosphorus and nitrogen in terrestrial ecosystems. She is specifically interested in interactions between different element cycles in soil. To gain a better understanding of element cycling, she uses a wide range of methods, including soil chemical analyses, isotopes as well as microbiological tools. During the last few years, she has studied soils in many regions including Chile, South Africa, and the US. In the future, she will focus on element cycling in temperate and boreal forest soils in Sweden.
