Romain Duquenne
environmental biogeochemist

As teaching assistant at the Bioengineering faculty, UCLouvain, I started a PhD project on the biogeochemical cycle of manganese in forested ecosystems and its influence on the soil organic matter dynamics. I currently work on the data from the European monitoring network ICP Forests. In parallel, I am involved in teaching mathematics, physics, probability, and computer science for undergraduated bioengineering students.
