About me

I’m a PhD student at the University of Nottingham, studying how changes in precipitation and soil moisture effect belowground dynamics in Arctic tundra. Read about my current research here.

I studied biology at the University of Sheffield, where I completed my Masters’ project investigating carbon storage in response to elevated atmospheric CO2 in phosphorus limited grasslands (which you can read about here).  I spent my second year studying at McMaster University, Ontario Canada (which you can read about here).

I love biology, ecology, sustainability, conservation, and I like writing and communicating science, especially when it’s relating to these issues!

I believe many of the issues we face, in society and out in our wonderful natural world, are global issues that require international interdisciplinary responses and solutions. To do this, we require open conversations, debates and passionate informed citizens to generate the momentum for change.

In this blog, I’ll share some of my takes on recent events in politics and science, as well as insights into life as a student and some of my favourite science/ ecology stories. I’ve also written on the Sheffield University students blog here. I’m always up for collaboration and would love to hear feedback on my posts!
