About Me

I am a PhD student on the SENSE Earth Observation CDT programme, based within the School of GeoScience at the University of Edinburgh.

My research is focussed on Arctic greening across spatial scales. Specifically, I am aiming to investigate the effect of sub-pixel scale physical phenomena, such as summer snow patches and permafrost thaw slumps, on Arctic greening analyses derived from MODIS and Landsat imagery.

I am a member of TeamShrub, a research group of ecologists working to understand how global change alters plant communities and ecosystem processes.

I am supervised by Isla Myers-Smith (University of Edinburgh) and co-supervised by Jeff Kerby (Aarhus Institute of Advanced Studies).
