In my PhD research project I am interested in the cycling of soil carbon and nitrogen in integrated crop-pasture systems. I combine long-term field experiments, laboratory incubations and modeling to understand the cycling of carbon and nitrogen in systems with different levels of intensification. Most of my research takes place in my home country, Uruguay, where I currently hold a research position at the Instituto Nacional de Investigación Agropecuaria, INIA (National Institute of Agricultural Research).
