Summary

 

Summary

I am an Earth system scientist and environmentalist.

My research focuses on the interactions between climate and the terrestrial biosphere in the past, present, and future. I am especially interested in the effects of environmental change on biodiversity and the consequences of biodiversity change for ecosystem functioning and stability.

I currently work as a Research Associate in Microclimate Modelling at Imperial College London. Our team constructs a Virtual Rainforest for Understanding the Stability, Resilience and Sustainability of Complex Ecosystems.

I am passionate about living and promoting a sustainable and healthy lifestyle that contributes to a safe and thriving planet for future generations.
