Research

RESEARCH ACTIVITIES

Landscape Environmental Stewardship
This complex field integrates plant sciences, landscape design, and ecology. My research focuses on urban soil and water and their function in supporting and sustaining horticultural services in urban environments.
X-ray Tomography
This advanced imagery equipment is enabling us to uncover the intricacies of agroecosystems by giving us the ability to see through opaque materials. With this cutting-edge approach, we can address both basic and applied research questions in soil and soilless cultivation systems. By revealing pore structure, water distribution, and root growth, we can improve our engineering and management of these systems for increased productivity and sustainability.
