 Research Interests

I am intrigued in understanding the soil biological, chemical, and physical processes with different management practices. My dissertation goal is to understand the complete contribution of cover crops to soil organic carbon and nutrients availability, either as root exudates or dead materials, their stability and decomposition in sandy soils.
