Jane has a number of key research interests: phosphorus use efficiency; nutrient cycling from soils to water and air, including losses of inorganic and organic carbon, nitrogen and phosphorus; diffuse pollution mitigation methods, such as buffer strips and reactive materials for pollutant control. She also has a variety of skills: the design and construction of hydrologically isolated experimental sites; the design and construction of a soil incubation system (DENIS system) for measuring gas fluxes; the use of high resolution monitoring techniques (in-situ sensors) for measuring hydrology and water quality; wet chemistry and gas analysis techniques, including segmented flow/flow injection, gas chromatography, HPLC; and processing large environmental data sets using MATLAB and R.
