PhD Postgrad Intro – Anna Carlton

Anna Carlton – Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) in Soil Science


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

“I grew up in Tauranga, New Zealand and moved to Christchurch eight years ago when I started my BSc (hons) at Lincoln University. After completing my honours dissertation in the soils and physical sciences department, I started work on a dairy farm followed by work with an irrigation company which eventually lead me back to Lincoln University to start my PhD.

My PhD thesis title is ‘Effects of alternative forage species and irrigation management on plant nitrogen uptake and nitrate leaching.” The last few years have entailed a couple of frosty mornings, too much cow pee, many interesting results and a lot of great people! This PhD is part of the Forages for Reduced Nitrate Leaching program. “
