Areas of expertise As Science and Policy Officer for the QUEST program (Quantifying Earth system processes and feedbacks for better informed assessments of alternative futures of the global environment) I liaise with policy makers, industry, NGOs, etc to make sure the work QUEST funds meets the needs of users, and that information exchange is timely and high impact. I also synthesise the science produced within the program, in response to policy questions and consultations.

My own research focuses on the carbon cycle; land use change and greenhouse gas emissions; climate impacts on forests; mitigation of climate change through avoided deforestation, forestry and bioenergy; climate mitigation scenarios, emissions pathways and policy implications.
