My research focuses on the ecological intensification of vineyard systems from the ground up.

This research is centered on the role of under-vine cover crops as tools for increasing arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi and soil organic carbon stocks.

Further to this, I am interested in exploring litter decomposition rates in the under-vine area, understanding rates of nutrient cycling in different litters and systems.
