Research Fellows

  • Anne Quillet has won a Marie SkŁodowska-Curie Fellowship entitled PEATland modelling for global carbon cycle and climate models.

Postdoctoral researchers

  • Gemma Dooling Associate Research Fellow working on methane and carbon dioxide monitoring in restored peatlands of Dartmoor and Exmoor. This is part of the Mires Extension project funded by South West Water.

Postgraduate researchers

  • Jerome Blewett Jerome graduated from the University of Manchester in 2017 with an MSci in Earth Sciences. He characterised the macromolecular and lipid biomarker composition of permafrost organic matter from North-East Siberia. Jerome started a PhD in the Organic Geochemistry Unit at the University of Bristol in 2017. This combined genomic and lipidomic project is funded by NERC, and is supervised by Prof Pancost, Dr Naafs, Prof Alexandre Anesio and Dr Angela Gallego-Sala.
  • Alex Whittle was a Master by Research student working on Late Quaternary changes in the Westerly Winds in Marion Island. He has now started a PhD (intake: September 2016) on Late Quaternary changes in the Westerly Winds over the Southern Ocean. NERC Case studentship with the British Antarctic Survey. Co-supervisors: Dan Charman, UoE, and Dominic Hodgson, BAS.
  • Hui Zhang is a PhD student working on "Long-term high latitude peatland and carbon dynamics". Based at University of Helsinki. Main supervisor: Minna Valiranta, UoH. Co-supervisor: Matt Amesbury, UoE.

Alumni

  • Jamie Charlton was working as an intern on a project modelling the extent of tropical montane peatlands. CLES Funded. Co-supervisor Lauren Parry - University of Glasgow.
  • Stacey New completed a MSc thesis entitled: Holocene fire history in peatlands: can evidence of peat burning be found in the palaeo-archive?, and is now working towards a PhD under the joint supervision of Claire Belcher and Ted Feldspauch.
  • Lisa Orme is a Research Technician working on the NERC funded millipeat project. Her main responsibilities: 210Pb dating, building age depth models, database.
