I’m a first year PhD student at the university of Edinburgh, supervised by Casey Ryan as part of the LANDTeam research group. Broadly, my research will focus on using remote sensing techniques to investigate ecosystem function of dry tropical ecosystems across the world. I’m currently doing lots of reading and learning about remote sensing techniques to help me design my research questions!

I’m part of the SENSE CDT, which aims to train PhD students to use satellite data to work on a wide range of environmental problems.
