Research Interests

I am interested in the potential for enhancing natural capital stocks on farmland to deliver ecosystem services and improve the sustainability of livestock production. My research focuses on incorporating trees into sheep and cattle farming systems and farm management practices that increase soil carbon whilst continuing food production. I use systematic methods to parametrise spatially explicit models of land management changes, to better understand carbon sequestration and ecosystem service delivery.
