About

 

I completed my BA/BSc in environmental studies and earth sciences at James Cook University before going on to do my Honours and PhD with Professor Michael Bird. My PhD examined carbon cycle processes in tropical savannas of far north Queensland, with a particular emphasis on the spatial distribution of soil carbon and soil respiration. I have also worked on projects examining the use of soil amendments in tropical agricultural soils, tropical vegetation structure in natural and intensively managed ecosystems, as well as soil carbon sequestration and modelling. My research interests include biogeochemistry, stable isotopes, and the terrestrial carbon cycle. My current research as part of the Leverhulme Centre for Climate Change Mitigation investigates how the enhanced weathering of basalt applied to soil under sugarcane could enhance production, improve runoff water quality, and reduce greenhouse gas emissions alongside carbon sequestration benefits.
