Dr Saran Sohi leads the soil science research in the UK Biochar Research Centre, Edinburgh. The aims of my research are to develop a sound mechanistic understanding of biochar function in soil.

Within Carbo-BioCrop

Saran Sohi is leader of Workpackage 2. This work package seeks to deliver a generalised understanding for the trajectory of carbon in soils following conversion to Miscanthus and SRC willow, both with and without the introduction of biochar to the soil. This will be achieved via two approaches (i) an intensive field study at two established energy crop sites; SRC and Miscanthus sites in Lincolnshire and a Miscanthus site at Aberystwyth and (ii) the extensive “chronosequence” that encompasses a range of environmental and soil conditions.
