I am a PhD candidate in the Biogeochemistry Research Group at the University of Adelaide's Waite Campus. My research is focused on soil acidification and the use of spectroscopic techniques to better understand and manage this issue.

I aim to explore how spectroscopy can be used to address both topsoil and subsurface acidity and also to assess amelioration techniques under minimum tillage cropping systems of South Australia. My PhD project is a part of a GRDC-funded project (led by PIRSA), focused on "New knowledge and practices to address topsoil and subsurface acidity under minimum tillage cropping systems of South Australia".
