My research goals are to conduct basic and applied research under organic system that supports the development of soil management to improve soil quality and productivity, and to assess the role of soil microorganisms that elucidate enzyme activities as integrative biochemical indicators of environmental quality and soil productivity. Another area of on-going research is oriented toward the area of biogeochemistry with emphasis on phosphorus and heavy metals cycling in agricultural system.
