Luis Lopez Sangil.  PhD.

Current address: Dprt. of Environment, Earth & Ecosystems, The Open University (UK)

His research in the CTFC focused on the soil carbon stabilization in Mediterranean agroecosystems and the interactions of  organic matter with the microbial and the mineral components in soils. Currently working on the functional fractionation of the mineral-stabilized SOM.
