My primary research interests focus on understanding soil biogeochemical processes and their impact on ecosystem services. I study the reactivity of mineral surfaces towards organic molecules (including nutrients and organic pollutants), formation and stabilization of soil organic matter on soil particle (organo-mineral) surfaces, and the control of biogeochemical reactions in subsoils on mineral weathering and elements (re)distribution. In my research, I use advanced analytical methods and instrumented field sites, coupled with statistical and geochemical modeling, to investigate chemical reactions in complex soil-water matrices.
