Research interests

I lead the York Institute for Tropical Ecosystems (KITE). Launched in 2005 as a Marie-Curie Excellence Centre, the KITE group investigates ecosystem dynamics in the moist forests, savannah-woodland spectrums and cropland mosaics of Eastern and Southern Africa.

Through a range of techniques, we aim to better understand the spatial and temporal dynamics of tropical ecosystems, their societal value and challenges to their conservation.
