Predicting the spread of invasive alien plant species in the UK (2016-2017)

My MRes research at Imperial College London looked at predicting the spread of invasive plant species like himalyan balsam in the UK under a medium emissions climate change scenario. This work used a fourth-corner approach based on functional trait, species abundance and environmental data.

Impacts of the invasive Nootka lupin in Iceland (2014-2015)

My final year project at Oxford Brookes examined the effects on native plant species richness in a range of Icelandic habitats where the invasive Nootka lupin (Lupinus nootkatensis) was growing at high densities.
