Roshean Woods – Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) in Soil Science
Roshean Woods is currently studying for her PhD in the field of Soil Science at Lincoln University. Professors Keith Cameron, Grant Edwards, Hong Di and Tim Clough are supervising this research.
“I grew up in NZ and was inspired to study at an agricultural university following a visit from DairyNZ to my high school, I loved science at school and their visit made the connection to an industry which I could see myself working in. During my Bachelor of Science degree I developed a keen interest in soil science , so I decided to continue studying soil science for my Honours degree and then now my PhD.
My PhD project is about the effect of alternative forages and gibberellic acid on nitrate leaching from New Zealand pastoral systems. An area of study which is very topical at the moment and I really enjoy.
