Christina is a soil scientist, specialising in the characterisation of soil organic matter in coastal ecosystems. Her research focuses on the quantification of soil carbon stocks and its composition in soil organic matter. She uses solid state 13C Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) spectroscopy to characterise organic carbon in coastal soils and to observe how its chemical composition changes during decomposition. In addition, she uses a combined infrared spectroscopy and partial least squares regression (IR/PLSR) approach aimed at providing a rapid and cost-effective method for the prediction of soil carbon contents in coastal soils.
