Soil Science and Systems
Crop and Soil Systems
I am a soil scientist. My current research focuses on agricultural soil systems under different management activities, assessing soil greenhouse gas emissions and mitigation, soil structure and quality, carbon storage and stability and nutrient dynamics. I completed my PhD in Environmental Geochemistry at the University of Edinburgh in 2006.
I am a lecturer, core module (Atmospheric Quality and Global Change) co-ordinator, moderator, personal tutor and MSc dissertation project supervisor for SRUC and University of Edinburgh MSc/PG dip programmes. I am mainly involved in teaching for 'Environmental Protection and Management', ‘Soil Protection and Management’ and 'Soils and Sustainability'.
I am also a lecture for the University of Edinburgh’s Global Academy undergraduate programmes and a dissertation research supervisor for SRUC Horticulture Honours students.
