Hello, and thank you for visiting!
I am a researcher at the Norwegian Institute for Nature Research, formerly with the University of Birmingham and the British Antarctic Survey. I am multi-disciplined field ecologist, with interests in how the climate, humans and other organisms can influence ecosystems across trophic levels, from molecules and microbes to soils and landscapes. As well as 'science-ing', I love to teach and create, so you can also use this website to access my educational resources, presentations and photography.

I'm passionate about education and inspiring a new generation of scientists to learn more about our fascinating cryosphere. So I've uploaded several lectures and classes from Yr 8 - Bacherlor's level, for others to access.
