Research interests:

I work on the physics, measurements, models, statistics, system analysis and sensor properties that all form part of measuring aspects of the land-atmosphere carbon cycle, with a particular emphasis on exploiting satellite measurements to improve carbon cycle models. A lot of my work is to do with forests, including measuring their biomass (I'm the lead scientist on the European Space Agency BIOMASS mission) and detecting and quantifying tropical deforestation.

Teaching interests:

My interaction with undergraduates these days is mainly through coordinating the 3/4 year projects, which is rewarding and interesting
