Research interests

I am a broadly trained physical geographer with a research specialism in climate change. I am interested in exploring how environmental change impacts our planet’s forests, and the elements of the carbon and water cycles played out in forests, and in the records of past global change that ancient trees contain.

I currently carry out research in the northern Boreal forest areas of Fennoscania and in lowland tropical rainforest in Sabah, Malaysian Borneo. 

I am interested in educational outreach activities and co run Swansea University Science for Schools Scheme, S4, funded by the Welsh Government’s National Science Academy.
