Personal profile


My research examines the effects of environmental change on the natural world. I am particularly interested in the extent to which an organism's local climate - its so-called microclimate - interacts with wider climatic conditions and shifts to define its niche, and ultimately, how this affects its prospects under contemporary climatic change.

I am lucky to be working with a team of superb collaborators in the UK, across Europe and around the world. Our latest projects combine state-of-the-art microclimate modelling techniques with a new digitised map of land use in Great Britain to investigate how long-term changes in our climate and land use affect extinction risk in plant and animal species. We are also working to inform climate change adaptation efforts by identifying and describing climatic refugia for range-retracting species.

I am always open to new ideas, projects or 'adventures' - send me an email 🌱
