Visiting Associate Project Scientist
Biological and Agricultural Engineering
My research is focused on organic waste stabilization, environmental fate of pesticides and the effect of amendments on pesticides and soil quality. My current projects try to improve the composting and anaerobic digestion process by altering the properties of the initial material. The second project, assess the use of compost or digestates as soil amendments to improve soil quality or to act as additives to improve the pest control technique known as soil biosolarization.
