Research overview

My main research focuses on plant-soil interactions and the impact of land-use change on ecosystem processes and services (e.g., biomass production, nutrient cycling, soil C storage). I am currently investigating the impact of mounted solar parks in the UK on the hosting ecosystem and how this affects the potential carbon emission savings to be realised by developing solar parks. In the past, I used plant traits to understand the expected trade-offs between exploitative and conservative life strategies among species and examine how they scale-up to changes in ecosystem processes and services. I have applied a functional approach to plant ecology using wetland and grassland ecosystems in the UK and agro-silvo-pastoral ecosystems in the Mediterranean region.
