Research interests

My research interests are highly interdisciplinary and involve studies at the interface of ecology with microbiology, soil science and global change biology. I am particularly interested in the variety of responses organisms make to environmental variation at the soil-plant interface and the influence of climate change on ecosystem processes.

One of my current projects involve the study of the determinants of beta diversity, including distance decay and environmental (e.g. climate) and edaphic (e.g. soil nutrients) factors.

Im also interested in characterising biological soil crust communities in Fynbos soils.
