My research aims to provide farmers and rural communities with options to more efficiently manage nutrients and mitigate contaminant losses to water and air. Nitrogen management in pastoral systems is my research focus.

Based in Lincoln, I have the privilege of leading our Environmental Science (South) team spread across Canterbury, Otago and Southland.

I was brought up on a high country sheep & beef farm in Southland. Outside work you will find me outdoors, enjoying good food and company.
