Research interests

I am an environmental scientist with a focus on sustainable development. My interdisciplinary experience includes microbial ecology, environmental/ecological change impacts, industrial environmental management, and renewable energy.

Currently I am researching the microbial ecology in enhanced, decentralised sanitation systems in SE Asia to optimise their performance and reliability, ultimately reducing waste and the spread of diseases.

Previously I created a decision-support tool for assessing the impacts of solar park management on ecosystem services (e.g. greenhouse gas fluxes, biodiversity and habitat provision). Before that I evaluated DNA sequence analysis methods and researched the impacts of increased flooding on microbial ecosystems and greenhouse gas emissions.
