Dr Sophie Green
Post-doctoral Research Fellow

Profile

I am a soil biogeochemist with 10 years’ research experience, mainly specialising in soil and peatland biogeochemistry, methane and carbon dioxide dynamics in peat soils, and roadside nitrogen dynamics on acid grasslands. My recent focus has been upon carbon uptake by and emission from soils (e.g., soil-plant interface); and how management can affect the carbon budget and the surrounding water bodies (e.g., DOC / POC export). Now currently working on SPECTRA: Soil processes and ecological services in the karst critical zone of SW China.

Broad research specialisms:

  • Soil and peatland biogeochemistry;
  • Methane and carbon dioxide dynamics in peat soils;
  • Roadside nitrogen dynamics on acid grasslands;
  • Carbon uptake by and emission from soils (e.g., soil-plant interface); and how management can affect the carbon budget and the surrounding water bodies (e.g., DOC / POC export);
  • Karst environments and soil erosion.

Qualifications
