I am a wetland and soil scientist specialising in biogeochemical and ecological functions.
With a background in limnology, and more recently experience working on peatlands and salt marshes, I aim to develop my research by exploring soil-water interactions for water quality and the implications for carbon and nutrient transfer through the landscape. I tend to prefer an applied research approach, enjoying finding ways to communicate and implement scientific findings for real world understanding and application.
