Dr Shu Kee (Raymond) Lam
Theme leader, Theme 4 - Agronomic, environmental and social benefits
Shu Kee Lam has expertise in quantification of agronomic and environmental benefits of agricultural management practices. He will lead Theme 4, which will measure and demonstrate the impact of the new fertilisers (developed in Themes 1 and 2) on the soil, environment and community health. His research focuses on soil carbon and nitrogen dynamics in agroecosystems, including soil-plant interactions under climate change (elevated atmospheric CO2 concentration) and mitigation of greenhouse gas emissions using urease and nitrification inhibitors. He also has expertise in global data synthesis including meta-analysis. He has been a chief investigator of research projects funded by Australian Research Council (ITRH, Linkage), Australian Centre for International Agricultural Research, New Zealand Ministry for Primary Industries, and Incitec Pivot Fertilisers. He is an Editorial Board member of Agriculture, Ecosystems and Environment and Plant and Soil, and a recipient of the ICM AgriFood Award (Australian Academy of Technological Sciences and Engineering), IPNI Scholar Award, and the Publication Medal of Soil Science Australia.
