Research interests

My research interest centers on how primary forest soil functions are affected by construction of terraces in forest plantations, and how these functions are re-established with time-since-terracing. And thus, subsequent implications for hydrological and erosion processes, implications on soil biological activity/functional diversity and implications on associated ecosystem services.
