Research Interests

Supervisor: Dr Rob Salguero-Gomez & Dr John Jackson

I am a third year undergraduate student reading for a BSc (Hons) in Biological Sciences at the University of Plymouth. My interests within ecology focus on green infrastructure and the utilisation of plant species in urban systems to mitigate the negative consequences of climate change and promote biodiversity. I am also interested in applying computational biology methods to model, simulate, and quantify the effects of green infrastructure. In the SalGo Team, I am working on the DRAGNet and DroughtNet projects.
