Personal profile


My research focus is on nutrient recovery from waste resources for fertilisers for the urban and agriculture environments. I am particulry intersted in the rhizosphere microbiome, and also arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi responses to both synthetic and organic fertilisers.

I am always happy to collaborate with positive, and passionate people!

Please see my publications for more relative information - cheers!
