In 2003 I finished an MSci in Physics and Astronomy at The University of Nottingham. I then moved to Edinburgh to start my PhD in the (then) Institute of Atmospheric and Environmental Sciences at The University of Edinburgh. I finished my PhD "A modelling approach to carbon, water and energy feedbacks and interactions across the land-atmosphere interface" in 2007 and stayed on to do my first PostDoc position as the 'flying doctor'. This PostDoc position was on the Arctic Biosphere Atmosphere at mUltiple Scales (ABACUS
) project. I worked on the airborne research work-package with the (Micro Met
) group at Edinburgh. During this time I was privileged to spend many hours happily fitting out and flying in G-GEOS the university's research aircraft.
I am currently a Postdoctoral Research Associate at the National Centre for Earth Observation (NCEO). NCEO is a NERC funded partnership of UK scientists and institutions, from a range of
disciplines, who are using data from Earth observation satellites to
monitor global and regional changes in the environment (NCEO homepage).
