Overview

I am currently a research assistant on the ICAAP – Increased Carbon Accumulation in Arctic Peatlands project. I have recently completed a PhD at the University of Reading researching the socio-economic responses to Late Holocene climate and environmental change in the Peruvian Andes. Primarily focusing on how agricultural practices have changed over the past 2000 years in response to known periods of past climate change and changes in the level of human land use.  I am interested more broadly in past human-environmental interactions and landscape change during the Holocene.

Qualifications

MSc Environmental Archaeology – University of Reading,

BSc Environmental Science – University of Reading
