Hello and welcome to my home page.
I am currently a post-doctoral research associate at the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences (SLU) employed by Peter Högberg and Sune Linder. I am working on a large-scale forest 13C isotopic labelling experiment which should provide novel insights into the factors that control patterns and rates of forest carbon allocation.
I completed my PhD in December 2006 at the University of Edinburgh, looking at carbon dynamics and climate change in the Amazon rainforest. I was a member of the Global Change research Group within the School of Geosciences. My supervisors were Patrick Meir, Mathew Williams and Yadvinder Malhi.
