I am a researcher with a focus on nutrient cycling in soils. I am particularly interested in the role of soil microorganisms in carbon, phosphorus and nitrogen cycles and with linking microbial community structure with function. I have worked on carbon projects in plantings in central Victoria, Australia, and am currently completing a PhD investigating the role of organic amendments and arbuscular mycorrhizas in crop phosphorus nutrition.
