I recently obtained the advanced postdoctoral fellowship from the Swiss National Science Foundation and I am currently a postdoc in the Biogeochemistry group of the University of Sydney (Australia) led by Dr. Feike Dijkstra. My research focus on plant-soil interactions and climate change (drought and fire) in australian grasslands. You're welcome to visit !

New greenhouse experiment:
Plant-soil feedback effets of the invasive Elymus caput-medusahead depending on its density. Feedbacks on its own growth and on the dominant species Avena Fatua. Soils collected in the field in 35 plots along a density gradient ranging from 0 to 1800 individuals of E. caput-medusahead. Thanks to the Undergra...Read Full Post »

New experiment in California: Set up!
Litter feedback effects of the invasive Elymus caput-medusahead and the introduced Avena fatua on their establishment and growth, and on native californian species. Thanks to Erica Spotswood and Liana Nichols, best team ever.
