I am a researcher with a focus on nutrient cycling in soils. I am particularly interested in the role of soil microorganisms and microbiomes in nutrient cycling. I have worked on carbon projects in plantings in central Victoria, Australia, and I completed a PhD investigating the role of organic amendments and arbuscular mycorrhizas in crop phosphorus nutrition. This PhD was based at The University of Adelaide, Australia, but also included an extended visit to The University of Copenhagen, Denmark. I am currently undertaking a postdoctoral position at the University of New Hampshire, in which I am investigating the functional significance of the soil microbiome across a land intensification gradient. I have experience working on field-, greenhouse- and laboratory-based experiments, across agricultural and natural environments.
