Research Interests

The goal of my internationally-recognized research program is to advance our understanding of biogeochemical cycling of nitrogen and carbon in various agroecosystems. My interests focus on providing solutions to farmers to improve soil sustainability by (i) elucidating the role of cover crops and other management on soil health attributes and its link to primary productivity/resiliency and (ii) enhancing nitrogen use efficiency while mitigating edge-of-field losses. I have published over 55 peer-reviewed papers, including 2018 Best Paper of the Year in the Canadian Journal of Plant Science. In addition to awards acknowledging my significant contributions to teaching, research and extension, I was thrilled to be recognized as one of six Influential Women of Canadian Agriculture in 2020.
