In recent years my research has focused on carbon losses from peatlands under intensive agricultural use and the fire-climate interactions in Siberia. I am running a network of Eddy Covariance Stations in the Fens in East Anglia funded by NERC, DEFRA and BEIS and we have now more than 20 years of data from different land management. In Siberia, supported by a NERC grant, I had set up weather stations to explore differences in local conditions due to different fire regimes. I have a strong interest and background in modelling the atmospheric exchange fluxes and ecophysiologial development of terrestrial ecosystems using coupled land surface and carbon cycle models.

I am teaching on all Geography courses of my School including the MSc in Satellite Data Science and the MSc in Environmental Futures. In the undergraduate courses I am particularly responsible for first year modules for Physical Geographers including the first year residential field trip. In the third year and on MSc level I teach on in my research area - the terrestrial biosphere. I am supervising dissertation students on all levels - undergraduate taught postgraduate and research postgraduate. At my School I am the plagiarism officer and responsible for training in academic integrity across all courses and dealing with all cases of academic misconduct. I have set up an international student exchange with the Department of Geography at the Goethe Universität in Frankfurt am Main in Germany. I am a Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Authority of the UK and trained external examiner.
