My research covers all aspects of wetland science from wetland zoology to constructed farm wetlands (CFWs), and thawing peat-permafrost in the Arctic to decomposition in Floridian mangroves. I am particularly interested in factors which control carbon and nutrient cycling in wetlands; especially in-terms of how these can affect ecosystems, the wider environment and even our climate.
After working as a news journalist and editor for several years I returned to university to study for a PhD on wetland biogeochemistry; looking at maximising carbon sequestration in peatlands, geoengineering and climate change. I then helped establish a unique MSc on wetland science at Bangor University - which I now run alongside other teaching duties.
