Research

Main focus: sustainable management of soil, water and landscapes
A soil scientist by training and with a passion for interdisciplinary work on water and fire sciences, my research focuses on the impacts of human and natural disturbances on soil and water resources. Key questions are: what are the fundamental processes affecting soil hydrologic functioning, and how can we improve understanding of these processes to sustainably manage soil, water and landscapes?
