I am a tropical forest ecologist, primarily focusing on the plants and habitat of South East Asia. These diverse and highly threatened forests are fascinating in their complexity and they provide the ideal location to conduct new and exciting research with a true impact on current conservation efforts.
I am currently studying for my PhD in ecology at the University of Stirling. My focus is on the effects of repeated logging efforts in Borneo and how these may alter recruitment into the tree community. By studying sapling and seedling communities, I hope to discover more about the long term sustainability and carbon storage potential of logged forests in South East Asia. I will be posting updates throughout the study, both here and on my twitter account.
