Currently I am a PhD candidate in the School of Agriculture, Food and Wine under the supervision of A/Prof. Tim Cavagnaro, Dr. Stephanie Watts-Williams and Prof. Mike McLaughlin. The topic of my research is 'Urban Agriculture in Adelaide with an emphasis on mycorrhizal fungi'.

As the world population is still going to increase over the next decades and global farmland is becoming more scarce, I do believe that urban agriculture can be an answer to many of our food security problems. Bringing food production back into the city and putting producers and consumers together has many advantages. However, being in an urban environment can be challenging when it comes to soil health.
In my research I want to have a very good look at the chemical and biological properties of urban agriculture soils and how we can improve this system. I also look at a group of little helpers called mycorrhizal fungi. Those fungi live in symbiosis with plant roots and help in delivering water and nutrients.
