Personal profile

Research Focus

I am soil biogeochemist with more than 18 years’ experience in research and private consultancy, with a passion for and specialising in: soil and peatland biogeochemistry, methane and carbon dioxide dynamics in peat soils, and gas transport in wetland soils

Currently focusing on PIPES: Pollutants In PEatlands: from sink to Source (Leverhulme Trust Research Grant - PI: Graeme Swindles). Peatlands are critically-important global carbon stores and habitats. However, peatlands have also been acting as sponges for several centuries – absorbing the pollution generated by human activities. There is a risk that peatlands are a ticking timebomb as they may release these vast stores of pollution under future climate change. This project will determine the levels of stored pollutants in a network of peatlands across the globe – from the arctic to the tropics. We will also use an experimental approach to determine which 'pathway' of release will have the greatest impact (i.e. airborne release or via water-borne transport).
