I am a PhD student in Physical Geography, looking at the palaeoecology of Amazonian open peatlands in the Pastaza-Marañón Foreland Basin (PMFB), northeast Peru. Working alongside the Tropical Wetland Consortium, I aim to make a contribution to our biogeographical understanding about the ecological importance, functioning and sensitivity of Amazonian open peatlands. I also have a deep interest in the history of vegetation change in woodlands and the impact of introduced species on the landscape, having worked with several research institutes and charities including the Woodland Trust.
