Kristin is a scientist at ESR based at Kenepuru Science Centre. She is an environmental ecologist and interested in everything related to soil microbial ecology. Her research focus lies on understanding how native plants steer soil microbial communities to mitigate environmental risks by land applications of biowaste (e.g. N-leakage, greenhouse gas emissions, spread of human pathogens). She is also interested to learn more about plant-microbe interactions of native plants to improve establishments of new plantings.
