I am an early-career scientist interested in global change ecology. My research focusses on plant and landscape ecology in the Arctic tundra, and currently, you can find me at Dartmouth College (Hannover, NH, USA) where I am a visiting scholar in Jeff Kerby’s lab.
In November 2018, I defended my PhD at the University of Edinburgh (Scotland, UK) for which I used satellites, drones and ground-based observations to better understand the processes that govern tundra vegetation change, working in the Tundra Ecology Lab (Team Shrub) with Isla Myers-Smith, Ally Phillimore and Richard Ennos.
Over the past years, I have organised and taken part in multiple expeditions to the Arctic, including the Yukon Territory, Canada and Svalbard, Norway.
I am an experienced drone pilot with many flight hours in remote environments. In summer 2018, I helped establish the drone-monitoring programme for the Climate-ecological Observatory for Arctic Tundra (COAT) at the Norwegian Polar Insitute with Virve Ravolainen and I have been an active member of the High Latitude Drone Ecology Network (HiLDEN) since its inception.
I enjoy teaching and communicating science. For many years, I volunteered in environmental education of primary school children and throughout my PhD I have been tutoring and demonstrating at the University of Edinburgh, including the Geoscience Outreach course, for which I supervised science outreach projects of final year undergraduate students.
