About T

tdbHi,

My name’s Taraka, (pronounced TAA-Rah-Ker – it originates from Hindu mythology), but everyone knows me as T – yes, just the letter T.

I’m interested in the relationship between changes in the climate and vegetation. My research has covered work on how the biogeophysics and biogeochemistry balance out at different scales and in different future scenarios, land use change, and terrestrial nitrogen and carbon cycles, particularly biological nitrogen fixation.

I’m currently working at University of Exeter, where I work on improving the representation of the terrestrial nitrogen cycle in the JULES model.

In my spare time, I’m a cyclist, hill walker, kitesurfer, computer geek, gin enthusiast, and dog team member.
