I lead work on the biogeochemistry of carbon (C), nitrogen (N), hydrogen (H) and oxygen (O) and global change issues, such as water quality, greenhouse gas emissions and sinks, as well as climate change impacts.

I am based at the National Isotope Centre. Much of my work involves the measurement and modelling of isotopes that are naturally present in the environment, to provide information that cannot be inferred from concentrations alone.

Developing new techniques requires strong understanding of the relevant science, analytics and the policy or management issues that require solutions. As a result, also put a great deal of focus into science-policy-economics integration and understanding. Reflecting this, I am currently an Associate Investigator in Te Pūnaha Matatini Centre of Research Excellence (CoRE) on complexity and networks.
