After obtaining my MSc degree, in crop production ecology, from Wageningen University, the Netherlands I moved to Ireland where I got a PhD degree in plant ecophysiology and biogeochemistry from Trinity College Dublin, Botany department then, joined the department as a postdoc. I moved to the University of Aberdeen, School of Biological Sciences to work as a research fellow/modeller in 2012. I have been working/collaborating on different national, European and international projects to conduct interdisciplinary research studies/modelling on greenhouse gas emissions from soil, carbon and N biogeochemistry, land-use change, sustainability  and climate change mitigation and adaptation. I have extensive experiences in measuring, monitoring, accounting, reporting and modelling greenhouse gas emissions, soil carbon sequestration, climate change mitigation and adaptation, land-use planning and nutrient management to achieve agricultural sustainability.


Research Overview

My research interests include process based biogeochemical modeling, global change impacts on ecosystems, agricultural strategies to mitigate climate change, and agricultural sustainability.


I am collaborating with the Greenhouse gas Reseach groups in Trinity College Dublin, University College Dublin and Teagasc in Ireland.
