I am broadly interested in ecology but my research is mainly focused on topics related with soil. Soil is central to many ecosystem processes and the driving force behind is soil biota. For this reason my research is tightly connected with the diversity and dynamics of soil biota. I’m especially interested in systems where soil use and ecology meet in practice – agriculture, seminatural communities, ecosystem restoration in practice and etc. I feel especially happy when I can use knowledge and experience from basic studies to tackle problems in soil and natuure conservation.

I am currently co-supervising PhD student Ayesh Piyara Wipulasena Aleihela Yamannalage (co-supervisors Professor Mari Moora and Associate Professor John Davison).

My research work and projects are listed in my profile at the Estonian Research Portal.
