Personal profile


I’m a soil ecologist with a special interest in the effects of microscale soil structure on nutrient cycling and carbon dynamics, and on the mycorrhizal symbiosis.

Soils store more carbon than the atmosphere and living biomass together, therefore are carbon compounds entering or leaving the soil C storage system of large importance for greenhouse effect mitigation. Soil organisms, and especially mycorrhizal fungi, channel large proportions of fresh carbon compounds entering the soil ecosystem, and we want to better understand their role in sequestering and stabilizing or decomposing soil organic matter.
