Professor Mark Brady, Mark [dot] Brady [at] slu [dot] se

I have a PhD in Natural Resource and Environmental Economics from the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences (SLU). My research is focused on developing ecological-economic models of the agricultural sector for policy evaluation. Specifically I am interested in modelling land use change as affected by farmers’ reactions to changes in external drivers and predicting the impacts on biodiversity and ecosystem services at the farm and regional levels.

Professor Richard Bardgett, r [dot] bardgett [at] lancaster [dot] ac [dot] uk, webpage

My research is broadly concerned with understanding the roles that linkages between aboveground and belowground communities play in regulating the structure and function of terrestrial ecosystems, and the response of ecosystems to global change. Much of my research is currently focussed on understanding the role that linkages between plant and soil communities play in the delivery of ecosystem services, especially soil carbon sequestration and nutrient cycling.

Post-doc Franciska de Vries, f [dot] devries [at] lancaster [dot] ac [dot] uk, webpage

I am a highly motivated researcher, who loves to share and discuss results and ideas with others. My research interests are focused on the effects of land use and climate change on soil biodiversity, and subsequently on the effects of changes in soil biodiversity on ecosystem processes. I am particularly interested in how plants and soil microbial communities interact under these changing circumstances, and how this influences ecosystem processes like nutrient and carbon cycling.
