Overview

I am studying for a Ph.D. in palaeobotany at Cardiff University School of Earth and Environmental Sciences in collaboration with the National History Museum in London, the University of Southhampton and the University of Sheffield. My project involves studying, describing, and reconstructing the Devonian flora of Svalbard, with particular emphasis on their transition from small plants with relatively simple morphology to larger, much more complex plants that resemble arborescent trees that formed the first forests in the Late Devonian. This project is under the supervision of Dr. Christopher Berry, Prof. Dianne Edwards, Prof. Paul Kenrick, Prof. John Marshall and Prof. Charles Wellman.
