Research Interests (300 words)
• Interdisciplinary studies involving sustainable management of natural resources and impact of fertilizer and/or manure on soil and water quality by agricultural/animal practices.
• Crop production, soil fertility and nutrient management in broad environmental aspects.
• Environmental soil chemistry with emphasis on risk assessment of legacy nutrient from agricultural and animal production systems.
• Quantitative estimation of global nutrient cycles in agricultural fields, watersheds and freshwater ecosystem.
• Biogeochemistry of nutrients and nutrient cycling (N, P, and C etc.) in soils and mechanistic and field-scale model inputs/parameters across a watershed.
• Analytical soil and water chemistry in proper understanding of environmental issues solving the problems relating to environmental sustainability.
• Consequences of biochar application in the face of climate change with a trade-off between agronomic benefits and environmental problem (e.g. soil and air quality).
• Multivariate data analyses and statistical approximation of archived data to provide inputs in nutrient management tools/models for assessing risk management of natural resources.
