My research field is perennial grasslands and cover crops, and I use isotopic labelling techniques to study the Carbon and Nitrogen flows in the plant-soil-microbial intersphere. My research is focused on high-yielding mixtures with legumes, using plant complementarity to increase the biomass aboveground and belowground, and using the N2-fixating plants to reduce N dependency and climate footprint of agricultural systems.
