Dear visitor, this website has been automatically carried over from the Classic sites and I need to redo all the formatting - a work in progress!

I use a combination of mineralogical, chemical and biological techniques to

investigate the biogeochemistry of contaminated soils and rates of mineral weathering. A particular focus at the moment is the role of earthworms in soil systems. This covers a broad range of areas ranging from ecosystem services, to evolution to carbon cycling.

On these pages you'll find details of ongoing and previous research.

You can read my blog, Darwin's plough (though sadly the web address doesn't include the apostrophe) here.

Please do get in touch if you want to collaborate, study with me or simply chat about my research or request a reprint.
