    Personal profile

    My PhD is part of the Leverhulme Centre for Wildfires, Environment and Society (Home - Leverhulme Wildfires Centre Leverhulme Wildfires Centre (centreforwildfires.org) and the DiverseK Pages working group (DiverseK | PAGES (pastglobalchanges.org).

    My research interests lie in the fields of palaeoecology (past ecology). Though the use pollen and charcoal as proxies for vegetation and fire, respectively. The ability to create long-term high-resolution records which can reflect changes in fire regimes and the interactions between fire and vegetation. These long-term records can provide us with the ability to understand fire and vegetation interactions in the past and to understand how they might change in the future.
