Joshua Buxton

Postdoctoral Research Associate

 Laver Building 

 

Laver Building, University of Exeter, North Park Road, Exeter, EX4 4QE, UK

Overview

I am a postdoctoral research associate who works on tipping points and the resilience of systems. My current project focuses on applying machine learning techniques to improve tipping point detection. Through my PhD, I have experience of working with remote sensing techniques to quanitfy the impact of agroforestry, the significance of vegetation patterning and ecosystem resilience.

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