Nikki is an environmental scientist at the James Hutton Institute. Nikki's current research is focused on soil hydrology and its linkage to water quality, quantity and Green House Gas emissions. She is involved in modelling soil erosion at national and catchment scales using Pan European Soil Risk Assessment model, PESERA. She is interested in developing links between soil hydrology and the transport of chemicals and particulate matter both in fragile upland environments and lowland agricultural systems. She is also interested how the spatial distribution or soils can be linked to national level assessments of soil as a provider of ecosystem goods and services.
