School of Biological Sciences
Faculty of Sciences, Engineering and Technology
I am currently a postdoctoral fellow at the Biogeochemistry Research Group, School of Biological Sciences, University of Adelaide. My main research expertise is in the areas of soil phosphorus, soil nutrient analysis, acid sulfate soils, and soil organic amendments. My current project work focusses on examining the effect of organic matter amendment on lime movement in acid soils. I also work on nutrient analysis in bushfire affected soils.
