Joseph Tamale is a PhD-Student working at the University Augsburg since October 2018. In his PhD thesis he is evaluating the effects of different soil nutrient status on soil biogeochemical processes in a tropical rain forest and sugarcane plantations in Uganda (SoBio). The project is funded by the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD).
Joseph Tamale is a Soil Fertility Scientist working with the National Agricultural Research Organization based at its Zonal Research Institute (Ngetta ZARDI) in Northern Uganda. He did his MSc. in Physical Land Resources (Soils Major) at Ghent University, Belgium with support from VLIRUOS. In his M.Sc. dissertation, Joseph did a physico-chemical, mineralogical and micromorphological characterization of landslide prone soils in Bumwalukani, Uganda where he contributed to a better understanding of these problematic soils.

His research interests include investigating:

  1. Soil trace gas fluxes in humid tropical forest ecosystems under elevated nutrient additions (N and P).
  2. Nutrient Use Efficiency in intensively fertilized sugarcane systems with respect soil trace gas fluxes and N leaching
  3. Effect of deforestation for sugarcane on C dynamics using isotopic composition (σ13C) analyses.
