My main contributions to this field of research, as can be deduced from my publication record, cover various aspects of soil-plant interactions, engineered fertilisers to improve crop nutrition, nanobiogeochemistry, contaminant risk assessment and characterisation of soil solution chemistry.

Theme 1: Engineered fertilizers to improve crop nutrition

Theme 2: Understanding the amelioration processes of the subsoil application of amendments

Theme 3: Soil-based technologies for climate mitigation
