I am studying  the patterns and controls of root trait variation in the Arctic with the aim to better understand how these affect soil carbon storage.

Previously, my research has touched upon the effects of herbivores, in particular reindeer, on the biogeochemical fluxes and carbon storage, concentrating on the effects mediated by plant communities.
