Research focus:
My research seeks to better understand nutrient cycling in agroecosystems, especially the impacts of agroecological practices (crop rotations, intercropping, cover-cropping) and alternatives to synthetic fertilizers (manures, composts, N-fixation) on carbon, nitrogen and phosphorus cycling as well as greenhouse gas emissions. My work focuses on the interaction between soils and crops to maximize crop productivity, optimize nutrient availability, and minimize environmental impacts.
