Jeremy Bougoure

Jeremy Bougoure is an analytical chemist with the Rhizosphere Function Integrated Research Platform. He has extensive experience in the application of high-resolution nanoscale secondary ion mass spectrometry (nanoSIMS) to investigate nano/microscale processes in biological systems. His primary interest is understanding plant–microbe–soil interactions, but he has successfully employed nanoSIMS analysis in numerous other scientific disciplines. The application of nanoSIMS to specific research has three phases: sample preparation, analysis, and interpretation/display of results. He strives to optimize these three pillars for user projects to generate best possible outcomes. 

Research Interests

  • Plant–microbe–soil interactions
