I am a wetland scientist specialising in biogeochemical and ecological functions in lakes, peatlands and salt marshes.
I am currently undertaking a maternity cover post, leading research into carbon sequestration and nutrient cycling in restored and natural salt marshes and peatlands, being responsible for managing projects; developing quality assured data management tools; and analysing and interpreting data for peer-review publication and contract reporting.
I have previously lead research into lake carbon sequestration, catchment nutrient recovery trajectories, climate driven phytoplankton responses to perturbation (focussing on diatom sediment trap seasonality) and future possible drivers of ecological change using the PROTECH model.
