Welcome to my research site!
Currently I am a postdoc working with Phil Robertson at the W.K. Kellogg Biological Station and as an associate researcher of the Great Lakes Bioenergy Research Center, at Michigan State University.
I am an agronomist with experience in the fields of soil science and crop production, garnished with isotopes (D15N and D13C). My main research interest is to investigate soil-plant-atmosphere interactions in order to seek novel and sustainable ways to promote resource-efficient in agricultural production while working toward a future of carbon farming.
My work tries to promote how Soil Organic Matter is an important ecosystem resource that may, together with other ecosystem attributes like biodiversity and ecological and evolutionary adaptation can make an agroecosystem resilient to climate change. Thus, the accrual of Soil Organic Carbon is important for mitigating climate change, not just only for buffering against its effects.
