Specialty:  Soil Microbiology and Plant Nutrition


My research focus is microbe-soil-plant interactions, studying the rhizosphere dynamics to improve the economic and environmental benefits of soil resources. Projects are in progress to identify soil management techniques for improving biodiversity of plant beneficial microbes in soils, increase soil carbon capture and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. I apply biogeochemical analysis and systems biology tools to measure soil microbial networks and their influence on biogeocycles. Other areas of interest include bioremediation of heavy metal contamination and acid soil management.
