I began working with UKBRC during the summer of 2009, producing a greenhouse gas life cycle assessment of certain pyrolysis biochar systems as part of the dissertation for my MSc in Environmental Sustainability at the University of Edinburgh.  During early 2010 I worked again with Simon Shackley, producing a toolkit and summary of issues relating to the public engagement and large carbon capture and storage projects.  Since November 2010 I have been employed on the  Interreg IVb 'Climate Saving Soils' project.

My main areas of research are lifecycle assessment, systems analysis and integrated assessment.  I am also looking after a number of field trial sites, and have an interest in the small scale production of biochar.
