Research overview

I am a professor in Biogeochemistry. Through my research I aim to improve our understanding of how nutrients are transported from soils to surface waters and the atmosphere. In particular, I am interested in the impact of land management, atmospheric deposition and climate change on carbon, nitrogen and phosphorus cycling in peatlands, organo-mineral soils and agricultural soils. 


Major research foci include:

  1. Factors controlling the long term increase in surface water dissolved organic carbon (DOC) concentrations
  2. Impact of peatland restoration on gaseous and aquatic carbon fluxes
  3. Carbon cycling in peatland pools
  4. Impact of land management on nutrient cycling in arable soils
