Can soil nutrients provide a limit on recent Arctic greening? An assessment of the progressive nitrogen limitation hypothesis in high-latitude tundra landscapes

Academic Profile

Andrew holds a BSc (Hons) in Geography from the University of St Andrews, during which he specialised in Physical Geography. He also holds an MSc in Biodiversity, Conservation and Management from the University of Oxford. His masters dissertation concerned the Holocene ‘greening’ of the Sahara desert, and examined the biogeographical relationships between hydrological systems and tree species.

Andrew has recently been employed as an Enterprise Application Developer (trainee) in the Isle of Man Government, and wishes to take these programming skills further during his research.

Current Research

Andrew has wide-ranging interests across biogeography and biodiversity conservation. He is primarily interested in how biodiversity science can be informed by long-term records of environmental and ecological change. He is interested in research that utilises stable isotope analysis, dendrochronology and species distribution modelling.

Andrew is an active coder, and is interested in opportunities to collaborate on projects with relevance to biodiversity conservation. Andrew is also interested in research opportunities concerning the Isle of Man and its natural environment.
