I am a researcher and consultant, currently studying a PhD in public health and urban greenspace with Imperial College London - Public Health School/Grantham Institute and the Wildfowl & Wetlands Trust. I have broad interests in quantifying urban greenspace and its benefits, including its extent, composition and structure and how these factors impact ecosystem services and biodiversity. To do so I have designed studies and collected primary data in the field using species and thermal surveys of plants and animals, and secondary data using large scale remote sensing, web scraping, open source and confidential government data. The tools I use for this work include remote sensing, data preparation and spatial analysis with Google Earth Engine and R packages such as dplyr, tidyr, sf, sp raster and rgeos; and applying frequentist/machine learning statistical models to data also in R. I strive for my work to have impact beyond academia through publications aimed at architects and planners and coverage in newspapers and on television. Thank you for visiting my website.
