ir. Astrid FrancoysAbout 

Astrid followed a MSc. Land and Water Management in Bioscience Engineering at Ghent University. For her MSc. thesis project she worked on greenhouse gas fluxes from tropical soils along an altitudinal gradient in national parks of Uganda (VLIR-UOS). After her graduation in 2020, she started a PhD at SoFer about the effect of capillary rise from ground water on heterotrophic activity and carbon cycling in agricultural soils during periods of drought. This FWO-funded project is supervised by Prof. Steven Sleutel and co-promotors Prof. Wim Cornelis (SoPHy) and Prof. Pascal Boeckx (ISOFYS).
