PhD Postgrad Intro – Carmen Medina Carmona

Carmen Medina Carmona is currently studying for her PhD in the field of Soil Science at Lincoln University. Professor Timothy Clough, Dr. Mike Beare and Dr. Sam McNally are supervising this research.

“I am from Colombia and I grew up surrounded by mountains and coffee plantations. Then I moved to Spain where I graduated with a BSc Honours in Environmental Science from Autonomous University of Barcelona. My interest in Soil Science started when I had the opportunity to work on a project assessing the potential of carbon sequestration in a limestone quarry mine soil amended with sewage sludge.

Currently I am doing a PhD project, about the influence of irrigation on carbon soil dynamics under pastures. I hope that at the end of this project we can determine whether irrigated pastures make the soil a sink or source of carbon, and therefore their impacts in terms of CO2 emissions.”
