After obtaining a PhD at the Trinity College of Dublin with a thesis on the potential of bioenergy crop Miscanthus to sequester carbon in the soil, I joined the Environmental Modelling Group at the University of Aberdeen as a Post-doctoral Researcher. My research interests involve investigating how carbon storage in soils will be altered by land use change to bioenergy plantations and in partitioning soil into fractionations that match theoretical pools in soil C models.
My main areas of expertise are in modelling greenhouse gas / carbon mitigation and mechanisms regulating soil carbon sequestration.
I am currently accepting PhDs in Biological and Environmental Sciences.
Please get in touch if you would like to discuss your research ideas further.
