My research interests are in plant ecophysiology and responses to climate change, particularly in sub-Arctic ecosystems. My current project investigates the impacts of extreme icing events on Arctic plant communities. I am working at the Abisko Scientific Research Station in Sweden and by performing field manipulation experiments I hope to understand the challenges faced by plants encased in ice and learn about plant responses to icing events at the species and community level.

I am supervised by Gareth Phoenix and Terry Callaghan and funded by NERC.
