Dr Lisa Cole

Lisa Cole is a Daphne Jackson Fellow at the University of Aberdeen in the School of Biological Sciences.

An experienced soil scientist with a varied portfolio of skills, Lisa completed her BSc in agricultural science at the University of Newcastle and went on to do a PhD at the University of Manchester on a CASE studentship with an industrial partner, investigating carbon release from soils. This led to postdoctoral research positions at Lancaster University and the University of York, and a post as the soil community ecologist at the UK Centre for Ecology and Hydrology (UKCEH) in Aberdeenshire.

Returning to research after a break of 14 years, Lisa’s two year Fellowship is sponsored by the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC).

Lisa’s research project is titled: Examining soil carbon response to land use change through the lens of microbiome traits and her Fellowship is due to finish in 2023.
