Biogeochemical cycling with an emphasis on C and N sequestration in or bioavailability to microbes within terrestrial ecosystems, and exchange of C and N between terrestrial ecosystems and the atmosphere. Tools and practical applications include, simulation modeling of C and N dynamics, resource recovery from by-products, land remediation, soil conservation, and greenhouse gas mitigation. Recent work has focused on hydrocarbon-induced soil hydrophobicity and transformations of xenobiotics in soil on one hand and modeling of trace gas emissions from soils on the other.
