Welcome to Biogeochemical Nutrient Cycling Lab!
We study the interactive cycling of carbon, nutrient, and water through soil, plant, and atmospheric processes. Our research is focused on unraveling biogeochemical mechanisms and threshold conditions governing nutrient retention and its environmental losses from managed ecosystems. In particular, we are interested in understanding and predicting soil-borne greenhouse gas mitigation opportunities and challenges in response to soil health practices and environmental stressors (e.g., drought). Our research applies the principles of agroecology and biogeochemistry to design sustainable soil nutrient management by employing field experiments, laboratory studies, and data-driven and process-based modeling tools.
