Research Interests

  • Nutrient cycling

  • Sustainable agriculture

As an undergraduate research assistant, I have worked on several projects in the Lower Mainland that explore the relationship between climate change and agriculture. In 2016 I assisted with the Delta Drainage project, and currently I’m working on the Agricultural Greenhouse Gases project.

I’m interested in researching management strategies that work with farmers and land managers to improve soil health, water quality, and biodiversity both on farms and in surrounding ecosystems, while maintaining or improving crop viability.
