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 writing up my PhD thesis at the University of Stirling for research focusing on the effects of repeated logging in Borneo and how this may alter recruitment into the tree community. By studying sapling and seedling communities, I am able to discover more about the long term sustainability of logged forests in South East Asia. I post regular updates on my research via my twitter account.
