BSc, MSc (DIC), PhD
Aaron works on modelling the effect of climate change on forest function and productivity. He is currently looking at ways of improving current process-based models to better capture the impact of extreme weather events, principally drought.
Aaron holds degrees in ecological sciences from the University of Plymouth and Imperial College London, and undertook a PhD jointly at the Institut de recherche pour le développement in Montpellier and the University of Bournemouth, modelling the impact of land-use change and deforestation on aquatic food webs, functional ecology and disease emergence.
Prior to joining Forest Research, he has also held post-doctoral positions in ecological and epidemiological modelling at the Royal Veterinary College, Imperial College London and the University of Cambridge.
