Camilla Gardiner – Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) in Soil Science

Camilla Gardiner is currently studying for her PhD in the field of Soil Science at Lincoln University. Professors Timothy Clough, Keith Cameron, Hong Di and Grant Edwards are supervising this research.

“I’m from Seattle, Washington. I graduated with an Honors BSc from UC Berkeley in Environmental Science and wrote my thesis there on the potential for San Francisco municipal compost application on California rangeland soils to increase soil carbon sequestration and how that annual carbon sequestration correlates to annual rainfall.

My PhD thesis title is “The potential for ruminant forage diet manipulation to mitigate urine-derived soil nitrous oxide emissions”. We are looking to identify naturally-occurring inhibitors, either in urine or in forage plants, that reduce nitrification in urine-affected soils and therefore reduce resulting N2O emissions.”
