About me

I am a second year PhD student researching epiphytic lichens within Scotland's temperate rainforest and how they may respond to a rapidly changing climate. I aim to characterise Scotland's temperate rainforest lichens by their stress physiology and in-situ microweather requirements and determine if they will be resilient to climate change. My project, titled: 'The resilience and acclimation potential of temperate rainforest lichens' is funded by NERC and CASE partner NatureScot.

My background is in ecology and I studied Wildlife Ecology and Conservation Science at the University of the West of England. My interest in lichens began during this time and I studied lichen taxonomy as well as completing a dissertation investigating the impacts of rock climbing on calcicolous lichens within a SSSI.
