NERC Independent Research Fellow

My research

My fellowship research “Plant nutrition as Earth System Science” addresses the interactions between soil carbon dynamics, plant nutrient uptake, and plant growth.

I work primarily in Arctic terrestrial ecosystems where environmental change is happening quickly. Soils in these regions are carbon rich – the fate of this carbon will be important in determining the global climate impact of Arctic change. I use a combination of experimental work and models, often employing isotopes to quantify carbon and nitrogen dynamics in plants and soils.
