Personal profile

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

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.
