José González is a postdoc with a background in soil science and a strong interest in systems dynamics modelling. José will be working with Jiasui and his team on the impacts of climate change on some of the major crop-pathogens systems by the development and use of models that will help to predict plausible scenarios for a sustainable and enhanced agriculture.
Elin Malmström is a biotechnology student at Uppsala university doing her master project here. Elin will work with Jaanis and Sara on a project focused on evaluating short and long-term effects of soil amendments with sewage sludge on soil microbial functions.
