I am responsible for teaching Physical Geography at Fitzwilliam, particularly for the first year Geographers. I teach a wide variety of topics, including climate change (throughout Earth's history and over the last few centuries), Geomorphology (coastal, terrestrial) and Ecology and Biogeography. I also teach on the Part IB Biogeography paper. My research uses tree rings (I am a dendrochronologist) to investigate tree and forest growth in European temperate forests, and relate spatial and temporal variations in growth to climate (and climate change) along with other factors related to ontogeny (e.g. changes in reproductive effort through an individual tree's lifespan).
I also teach undergraduate Geographers in Oxford (St Catherine's College).
