Research Interests


Microbial ecology; Microbial community composition links to ecosystem processes;  Biogeochemistry.

Bringing traditional soil organic chemistry and microbial ecology to understand how microbial adaptation and survival in soils may act as a bottleneck or impact on the functioning of natural and managed ecosystems

What are the organisms?
Where are they?
What do the organisms do?
Do soil species matter in ecosystem processes?
How will soil species respond to the changing world?
Should we care?
