Research Projects/Interest

My research roots in understanding three ecological processes that support major soil functions and ecosystem services in agroecosystems: i, soil carbon and nutrient cycling for soil fertility and soil health; ii, plant/soil interactions and biodiversity for integrated pest and weed management; and iii, the soil-water relationships for developing climate resilient agriculture. My research applies insights from fundamental research and adopts new technologies to address practical challenges in sustainable agriculture.
