Research Overview

Human activity has accelerated the movement of phosphorus, nitrogen and carbon through the Earth system by several hundred percent compared to natural or background conditions. Ben is a biogeochemist who is interested in the effects of these increased fluxes on water and soil ecosystems. His research also examines how future human demand for nutrient resources can be met, whilst at the same time minimising the environmental damage that follows inefficient nutrient use.
