My research focus is in global change ecology. I am interested in biodiversity change, global change drivers, conservation and agroecology. For my PhD, I am conducting an attribution analysis of biodiversity change to determine if land-use change and climate change explain biodiversity trends.
I’ve also studied the effect of agri-environmental schemes on farmland birds in Scotland. I’m part of Team Shrub at the University of Edinburgh, where I’m contributing to research on vegetation and environmental change in the Arctic, including changes in plant community composition, regional species pools and active layer depth.

I am passionate about quantitative skills and the development of statistics and programming knowledge among people from diverse backgrounds and career stages (check out Coding Club for R tutorials).
