Personal profile


My work focuses on chemical, physical and biological factors that influence soil nitrogen (N) mineralization. Recently, I have estimated the nitrous oxide (N2O) emission in New Zealand agricultural drains, particularly known as N2O transfer velocity. In past, I worked the soil, water, and plant research projects that used stable isotope techniques to quantify the carbon and N fractionation and transformation between different pools. Currently, I am trying to quantify the soil N in cropping agriculture in Western Australia (WA). Generating empirical data by operating various experiments, I am planning to improve N recommendation models. Stable isotopes, especially 15N will be used for these studies. I am an ambitious environmental and analytical research students with various research experiences.
