Research Interests

My research interests are centered around Soil and Water Management and Precision Farming. My current research projects are focused on exploring traffic and tillage interactions using field scale experiments:

  • Conventional tyre inflation pressure
  • Low tyre inflation pressure
  • Controlled traffic farming
  • Deep, shallow and zero tillage systems

I am also interested in soil mechanics, specifically in soil and tyre interractions: The Evaluation of The Soil Pressure Distribution and Carcass Stiffness Resulting from Pneumatic Agricultural Tyres.

Current PhD/MPhil supervision: 5 students
