Juliet has a PhD in Soil Science from Lincoln University. She joined Lincoln Agritech in Hamilton in 2006 as a Science Technician and has since then contributed with field and laboratory work to Lincoln Agritech’s vadose zone and groundwater research.
Her PhD project, funded through the MBIE ‘Groundwater Assimilative Capacity’ programme, focussed on nitrate attenuation in shallow groundwater systems. Her project used isotopic methods and N gas (N2O, N2) production measurements to locate zones conducive to denitrification, quantify denitrification and identify the electron donors involved. Her work in this area continues and is focussed on applying these techniques to new catchments with different hydrogeological characteristics.
Her particular focus is the use of various methods to:
- Locate zones conducive to denitrification
- Quantify denitrification
- Identify the electron donors involved
