I'm broadly interested in how human activities affect our environment and how the environment in turn affects us. During my PhD, I worked on how land-use changes in grasslands affect provision of ecosystem services such as carbon storage and groundwater recharge, which are environmental processes that have direct implications for our societies.

I'm currently a Marie Curie Research Fellow at the Max Planck Institute for Biogeochemistry in Jena, Germany. I'm examining fluxes from soil carbon stocks under agricultural conversion with Sue Trumbore. Previously in France, I worked on a project examining ecosystem services (soil fixation, carbon sequestration and water-related) provided by roots under natural and agroforestry land uses.
