My research interest lies in understanding soil microbial processes and the underlying mechanisms. More specifically, my aim is to link microbial physiology and biodiversity to element cycling with a focus on soil carbon. A key question is also to determine how environmental change affects these linkages and thus ecosystem functioning.
