Adrian specialises in Environmental sciences: Rhyzophere processes leading to the uptake of Ni by Ni hyperaccumulator.

The project aims to go beyond the current limited knowledge regarding the nickel soil to root transfer to go towards a better understanding of what is happening in the rhizosphere.

Adrian graduated with a MSc in pollution management from the Lille Catholic University in 2016. He started a PhD in April 2017 at the Centre for Mined Land Rehabilitation under the supervision of Peter Erskine and Antony van der Ent.
