My research focuses on nutrient cycling and management within the agroecosystem. My specific current interests include: the evaluation of manure management strategies to decrease losses of nutrients and bacteria to the environment and improve the agronomic availability of the nutrients, and investigating spatial variability of soil nutrients and plant response. I am currently collaborating with several individuals within the University of Guelph.
