Dr. Bjorn JM Robroek, PI
Lives in: Winchester
Went to school/university in: All over the place, from Kerkrade (NL), to Utrecht (NL), to Leeds (UK) and Lausanne (CH).
Ecological interest: I want to understand the role of plant community (functional) assembly on ecosystem processes –such as carbon and nutrient cycling. Particularly, I am fascinated by plant controls on ecosystem processes, and how these are mediated through interactions between plant and microbial communities. All in a sauce of global climate change.
When not at work, I love: spending my free time in the outdoors as much as possible. I am passionate about trail–running and camping, and love to read crime– and legal thrillers.
