John L. Godlee

I am a PhD student in the School of GeoSciences, where I study interactions between plant biodiversity, the physical structure of tree canopies and biomass in Southern African Woodlands. I work mostly with data from plots in the SEOSAW network and Terrestrial Laser Scanning.

I sometimes help to run workshops and write online material for Coding Club, a University of Edinburgh peer to peer learning scheme which aims to improve proficiency in statistical analysis and programming.

I write website copy intermittently for Agricology, a website which offers advice on sustainable farming in the UK and I am in the process of reforesting an area of farmland in the Yorkshire Dales.
