Summary

I am interested in how soil and leaf-litter invertebrate communities respond to human impacts, particularly in forest and urban ecosystems. I am passionate about UK biodiversity, its identification and recording, and am an active member of many natural history societies. I have developed and assisted with award winning public engagement activities with various societies and through my citizen science project - Earthworm Watch. I am Interim Project Coordinator for the LEARN CitSci project which is studying what impact citizen science projects have on the young people that take part in them. I am also employed by the Permaculture Association as a Citizen Science Facilitator, working on the GROW Observatory which aims engage thousands of growers, scientists and others passionate about the land and collect data on soil moisture and regenerative growing practices. My PhD research investigates how soil and leaf litter biodiversity responds to land use change using an integrative approach - combining new data collection, citizen science and analysis of existing data re-purposed from literature as part of the PREDICTS (Projecting Responses of Ecological Diversity In Changing Terrestrial System) project (http://www.predicts.org.uk). My PhD is funded by NERC through Imperial's Science and Solutions for a Changing Planet Doctoral Training Programme. LEARN CitSci is funded by Wellcome and UK ESRC (UK) plus National Science Foundation (USA). The GROW Observatory is funded by European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme.
