Research interests

My work focuses on understanding what the implications of climate change would be for the terrestrial biosphere at a global scale, and how vegetation may respond and feedback to the climate.

This requires consideration of both biogeochemical aspects (e.g. changes in the carbon cycle) and biogeophysical aspects (e.g. changes in albedo or evapotranspiration) of vegetation and climate interactions, as well as quantifying changes in vegetation cover and biodiversity.

My current project looks to the past (the last 120 million years) to explore using a trait-based dynamic vegetation model the very different vegetation, its biodiversity and distribution. This can help inform the no-analogue future warm climates, as well as contribute to our understanding of how vegetation responses to climate changes.
