Research interests 

I am a PhD student on scaling reactive nitrogen from grassland at SRUC. My background is focus on sustainable development of agriculture and agro-ecology. I am now more specialised on greenhouse gas emissions and nutrient cycling. I recently took part of the Legume-Futures an EU Framework project. In the France, I undertook a project on monitoring phenology using repeat photography. My current research interests include:

  • Sustainable development of agriculture
  • Agro-ecology
  • Greenhouse gas emissions from agricultural soils
  • Climate change mitigation and adaptation
  • Legumes crop rotation
  • Spatial and temporal variability in nitrous oxide emissions from agricultural soils
  • Predicting and modelling nitrous oxide emissions
  • Soil nitrogen cycling
  • Image analysis for phenology monitoring
  • UAV

Selected research projects

PhD: Scaling reactive nitrogen of intensively managed grazed grassland
Studying spatial variability of nitrous oxide emissions at the field scale
