My research and teaching span global forests and savannas, with a focus on the tropics, especially Latin America, where I have lived and worked for more than 20 years. My research aims to understand the drivers of vegetation dynamics and structure, the effect of changing climate on carbon and nutrient cycling, and how disturbance and forest degradation, including natural processes and anthropogenic conversion, affect long-term vegetation function. I trained in plant biology and environmental sciences at Michigan State University and then worked for a number of years in research with the US Forest Service and Pacific Northwest National Laboratory. I obtained an MSc and PhD in forest ecology and soil science at Cornell University studying secondary forests, restoration, and logging while living for several years in central and southern Amazonia. Following a postdoctoral fellowship at Cornell using stable isotopes to study changes in plant and soil carbon dynamics due to invasive species, I moved to a postdoctoral fellowship at the University of Leeds to study the drivers of change in pantropical tropical forests and savannas. I am a Professor of Terrestrial Ecology and Global Change, Director of Postgraduate Research in Physical Geography, at the Faculty of Environment, Science and Economy and part of the Landscape and Ecosystem Dynamics group and Global Systems Institute. Externally, I am a teaching professor at the National Institute for Amazonian Research (INPA) and UNEMAT, Brazil.

Broad research specialisms:

Tropical forest ecology; Amazonia and Africa; Land-cover, land-use change; Forest disturbance, degradation, and restoration; Logging; Forest-climate interactions; Drought; Fire; Pyrogenic carbon; Terrestrial carbon and nutrient cycling
