I am Chair in Global Change Ecology in the School of Environment, Earth and Ecosystem Sciences.

I direct the NERC Methane Network 'MethaneNet' and I am PI and Co-PI on numerous grants funded via the NERC, Defra, The AXA Research Fund, The Royal Society as well as other sources.

I am interested in the biogeochemistry of carbon-dense terrestrial ecosystems and how they interact with the atmosphere through the exchange of greenhouse gases.

These interests include the role of trees in mediating methane emissions from wetlands,  the effects of fires and disturbance on fluvial carbon fluxes from forested tropical peat-swamp forest catchments in South-East Asia, investigating the effects of restoration on lowland peatland processes. I also have an interest in the effects of acid rain sulfate deposition on methane emissions from both natural and artificial wetlands (rice paddies). Other interests include the effect of ancient atmospheric composition on wetland biogeochemistry and the effect of volcanic events on wetland ecosystem function.

TRANSFER OUT - Mitigation of CH4 and N2O emissions from tropical peatland plantations under a changing water table regime
RoleStart dateEnd dateFunding source
Lead28 Feb 201927 Feb 2022The Royal Society

Ongoing NERC funding is supporting the investigation of methane and N2O emission from trees in the Amazon with changes in inundation and water-table. The new temporally variable water-table work, in addition to in-hand spatially variable date on CH4 emission from our work published in Nature in Dec 2017, provides tantalising information on the response of tree methane emission to changes in water-table. This is important as it suggests that trees growing in a water-table of up to 1m depth (not currently thought to be a methane source) can emit methane thus extending the area of forest that is responsible for methane emissions beyond that of the seasonal wetland area extent. However, modelling this hydrological control over the principal egress pathway for these powerful greenhouse gases remains challenging due to the huge diversity of trees which may all respond differently to inundation. We propose to use the opportunity of a new large-scale water-table manipulation experiment in different equatorial location (Riao, Sumatra, Indonesia) to examine this interaction in a detailed and highly controlled way. Several thousand ha of acacia plantation on peat are about to be converted into a new highly-controlled experiment to examine the growth and fibre potential of acacia and native tree species on a range of water-tables (70, 50 and 30cm beneath the soil surface). The work is being carried out by APRIL Pulp and Paper to examine responses in their commercial crop to a new Indonesian government law to rewet 2.5 million ha of peat. In developing this project to examine emissions from current and potential commercial plantation trees we hope to develop a new network of regional and international scientists to gain the maximum possible science understanding from this unique opportunity to develop a scientific resource with commercial partners.

Methane Production in the Arctic: Under-recognized Cold Season and Upland Tundra- Arctic Methane Sources-UAMS
RoleStart dateEnd dateFunding source
Lead01 Jul 201728 Feb 2022NERC Natural Environment Research Council

This project will refine understanding of the current magnitude of methane emissions from the Arctic. In particular, emphasis will be placed on the processes currently under- represented and poorly understood in concerning Arctic methane (CH4) balance. These are: a) the role, magnitude, and processes where by methane is released from non-inundated tundra or “dry tundra” and b) the role of cold season in annual CH4 emissions. The project will incorporate this new understanding in three major models JULES, LPJ, and TCF. Special emphasis will be placed on understanding processes including how, despite much conventional wisdom, poorly inundated tundra can be a major source of Arctic methane emissions, in some cases greater than those of inundated tundra. The overarching objective is to improve our ability to estimate current and predict future CH4 fluxes in the Arctic by improving understanding of the temporal and spatial control on CH4 flux.

Astronomy and Planetary Sciences at the Open University
RoleStart dateEnd dateFunding source
Co-investigator01 Apr 201431 Mar 2017STFC Science & Technology Facilities Council

The aim of our programme in Astronomy & Planetary Science at the Open University (APSOU) is to carryout detailed investigations of the origin and evolution of galaxies, stars and planets with a special emphasis on our own Solar System through a combination of observation, simulation, laboratory analysis and theoretical modelling. Our research is divided into two broad areas, reflecting the historical research strengths. This research programme is well-matched to both nationally- and internationally-agreed research imperatives. In its final report, A Science Vision for European Astronomy2, Astronet’s Science Working Group identified four broad areas of strategic importance; our research covers major topics within each of these areas. APSOU projects also map onto two of the four Science Challenges that form STFC’s Road Map3 for science (‘How did the universe begin and how is it evolving?’ and ‘How do stars and planetary systems develop and is life unique to our planet?’). The present APSOU programme comprises 20 projects (labelled A to T), of which 6 are for consideration by the Astronomy Observation (AO) panel, 1 for Astronomy Theory (AT), and 13 for the Planetary Studies (PL) panel. The AO projects cover the breadth of the 7 themes recognised as UK strengths in the report of STFC’s Astronomy Advisory Panel (AAP), whilst the 13 PL projects are directed towards answering questions raised in two of the three themes identified as UK strengths in the roadmap of STFC’s Solar System Advisory Panel (SSAP)4.
