In a broad sense I am interested in future climate and the way that vegetation interacts with climate.

My current research aims to improve understanding of the sensitivity of the climate system – land surface interactions to changes in biogeophysical forcings (e.g. evapotranspiration, albedo, surface roughness, etc. – see cartoon below). This research spans different temporal scales, from seasonal means to decadal and┬ácentennial┬áprojections, as well as deliberate (geoengineering), inadvertent (land use change) and natural changes to biogeophysical forcings.

To explore these questions, I use computer models, notably climate models made by the UK Hadley Centre.

In short: future climate and land surface interactions | vegetation changes | biogeophysical effects | climate science | geography
