Investigating the nature and dynamics of soil phosphorus is my main interest. I also work with the stable isotopes of carbon and nitrogen in natural and agroecosystems.

Currently, I am working on the £3.7M NERC-funded research project QUINTUS: Quinquennial (half-decadal) carbon and nutrient dynamics in temperate forests: Implications for carbon sequestration in a high carbon dioxide world. QUINTUS aims to carry out detailed measurements of nutrients and determine how a mature temperate forest responds to rising atmospheric CO2 concentrations at the University of Birmingham’s Institute of Forest Research (BIFoR) free air CO2 enrichment (FACE) facility.
