I am a Lecturer in Soil Biogeochemistry with a particular interest in upland, peat and forest soils. My work includes the effect of environmental (e.g. acid rain) and land management change (e.g. burning, afforestation) on soil and solution chemistry, and the subsequent effects on surface water quality. I am particularly interested in the cycling of carbon and the mobilisation of metals.
