I am primarily an ecologist. I obtained my PhD in soil science at The University of Sydney and I am now working as a Post-Doc at the University of Vienna. I have always been interested in human impacts (and climate change) on ecosystems and therefore I was dedicated to understand the functioning of ecosystems. This is the reason why I started researching on soil and plant-soil interactions. Indeed soil contains most of C in terrestrial ecosystems and climate change could cause positive or negative feedbacks in term of green house gas emissions from soil. Plants and micro-organisms play a central role in all of these dynamics, but we still know so little about it.
