Overview

I am a PhD student working on ecosystem resilience. I graduated from the University of Bristol in 2017 with a BSc Mathematics degree. Throughout this, I focused on applied mathematics, while also developing an understanding of wider environmental issues and sustainable development. Following this, I undertook the MSc Climate Change Science and Policy course at the University of Bristol. For my research project I studied the marine carbon cycle with the model cGENIE, with a focus on the impact of rain ratio sensitivity and variation on the wider carbon cycle.

I am currently working to quantify the impact of changing climate variance on ecosystem resilience in semi-arid ecosystems using remote sensed data. I have been working to quantify the impact of large scale community tree planting in Kenya with The International Small Group and Tree Planting Program. I have also been involved with a project to quantitatively analyse the morphology of patterned vegetation and its resilience to a changing climate.

I am a member of Professor Tim Lenton's ecosystem resilience group and Professor Hywel Williams' SEDAlab.
