Research interests

My current research is mainly focused on the controls of the emission of biogenic volatile organic compounds (BVOC), especially in the Arctic. I have a broad background in environmental science and ecology, and my interests include processes related to the soil carbon storage, plant-soil interactions, and ecosystem-atmosphere interactions.
