Research Interests

In the Environmental Processes Laboratory at the University of Warwick we link environmental microbiomes to biogeochemical processes. Our research is important for understanding issues related to soil health, global change, and climate.

We are particularly interested in:

  • Uncovering novel biogeochemical mechanisms resulting in fluxes of nutrients and other elements from ecosystems.
  • Determining how global change processes influence terrestrial ecosystem function.
  • Developing robust theoretical frameworks for extrapolating ecosystem function across spatial gradients.
  • Technologies that better resolve spatial variability in ecosystem function measurements.
