Educational and work
Research has focussed on understanding of the role of soil prokaryotes in soil nitrogen transformations using a combination of constructive microcosm, soil biogeochemistry, molecular ecology, metagenomic and cultivation approaches. Current research interests also include understanding the diversity and functional impact of prokaryotic viruses in soil.
