Research Interests

I'm a botanist with broad ranging research interests including plant physiology, autecology, population genetics, taxonomy and the distribution of island plants and invertebrates. Island conservation and ecology is a particular focus of my research, and I have been lucky enough to work on the plants and invertebrates of Ascension Island and St Helena. Additional research interests include, peatland ecology and hydrology, especially the interactions between vegetation, land use (e.g. fire), biogeochemistry, and climate change.
