I am a PhD candidate and my research interests are in carbon cycling between the land, water, and atmosphere in ecosystems that fall within the terrestrial-aquatic interface. My focus has been on carbon dioxide and methane dynamics within modified wetlands and floodplains. My work examines the complete carbon balance of a coastal floodplain under intensive sugarcane production. I use a combination of hydrological and micro-meteorological techniques to quantify carbon fluxes from both terrestrial and aquatic components. Additionally I engage with carbon stable isotopes and other natural tracers to assist with defining the drivers and pathways of carbon flux measurements. I wish to investigate both ecosystem scale and microbial scale processes/drivers of carbon dioxide and methane in natural and modified ecosystems, to help better constrain carbon budgets.
