Research overview

My research investigates how ecosystems respond to change. I’m happiest when working in forests but I also make the occasional foray into grasslands. My main research focus lies in determining how interactions between above- and belowground processes affect ecosystem function. I currently work in the UK, Panama and Germany using a wide range of tools borrowed from biogeochemistry, plant-, soil, and microbial ecology. I'm part of the Steering Group of the UK's longest-running climate change experiment and Review Editor for Functional Ecology. I’m also passionate about science communication and public engagement with science.
