I am a post-doctoral research associate in the School of GeoSciences at the University of Edinburgh. I work as part of the SECO project: resolving the current and future carbon dynamics of the dry tropics. My focus with this project is on spatial analyses of the carbon cycle in the dry tropics. I am a part of the LANDteam research group.
My research background is in geospatial analyses using satellite remote sensing data, applied to questions of land use and land cover change, as well as biodiversity and carbon. My PhD was focused on trees on farms, applying ecological and socioeconomic analyses to Tropical agroforestry landscapes using remote sensing. More information on my PhD can be found here. Information on my work developing a global indicator for monitoring the biodiversity of trees on farms can be found here.
