Specialty: Water and solute transport in soil and plant, water and nutrients uptake
My studies aim for better understanding of water flow and solute and heat transport in the soil-plant-atmosphere continuum as a crucial factor for establishing optimal protocols for farmers and decision makers. The main approach to achieve the research objectives is to raise agricultural water use efficiency using optimal irrigation and fertigation scheduling. This approach is supported by modeling (numerical and analytical), measurement and interpretation of water flow, solute and heat transport in the soil-plant-atmosphere system.
