I am a Doctoral Student in soil science in the Group of Nutrient Cycling, within the Department of Soil and Environment. My work focuses on carbon and nutrient cycling below ground, and how this is impacted by crop diversification strategies. Currently, with a more specific focus on intracropping, functional diversity, and carbon persistence.


Laboratory assistant in Soil Science for Environment and Water Undergraduate level course
