Awarded John Waid Award for the best review article in the field of soil science, biology and biochemistry published in 2015.
Ranked among the top highly cited scientists in the field of agricultural sciences according to Thomson Reuters.
Leading research worker at the center for mathematical modeling and design of sustainable ecosystems of Agrarian and Technological Institute of RUDN.
At present E.V. Blagodatskaya is Private Associate Professor of Georg-August-Universität Göttingen, Germany.
E.V. Blagodatskaya gives the courses of lectures:
- “Microbiology of soil”
- “Kinetics of enzymes and efficiency of carbon use”.
- E.V. Blagodatskaya established dependencies between the amount of added substrates in relation to microbial carbon biomass and induced priming effects in the soil structure. The phenomenon of the "priming effect" is responsible for changing the rate of destruction of organic matter after adding available carbon to the soil.
- E.V. Blagodatskaya proposed a new approach to dividing microbial biomass into 3 sources based on a combination of 14C labeling with 13C natural abundance.
- E.V. Blagodatskaya participated in the creation of the ORCHIMIC model, designed for large-scale applications of microorganisms that decompose organic matter in the soil.
- Soil biota;
- Efficient use of carbon;
- Enzymatic kinetics.
