Jackie Stroud is a NERC soils fellow based at Rothamsted. Her work focuses on the role of earthworms in contemporary agriculture because of their roles in improving the sustainability of soil management practices. She has established two zero-tillage field trials to study fundamental changes in soil structure and launched the national 60minworms survey this Spring, which is one of the largest on-farm earthworm surveys in the UK to date.
Jackie has published over 35 peer-reviewed journal articles, and prior to her fellowship had completed post-docs in the UK, Australia and the Cz Republic. She earned a degree in geology from RHUL and studied soil bioremediation for her doctorate at Lancaster University.
