My current research interests include plant and fungal community ecology, above-below ground linkages, soil biodiversity and function, and environmental conservation. I am particularly interested in drivers of community and ecosystem change (land-use/management/disturbance eg fire, forestry, agriculture) and how these affect biodiversity and ecosystem function above and below ground (i.e. mycorrhiza, nutrient (N and C) cycling, ecosystem health, community compositions etc).
