My interests are forestry, mathematics and data.
Working as a post doc researcher, producing forecast models for forestry using python and R and working with different kinds of data could not make me happier.
Originally studying maths, I obtained several years of experience in the financial sector. Developing an interest in
forestry, I worked as a tree surgeon before moving to Scotland to obtain an MSc in Forestry.

| My PhD was in the area of growth models for Irish forestry. Working on dynamic state space models I investigated their applicability to mixed species stands.
I am currently working as a post doctoral researcher and continuing to develop these models using National Forest Inventory data while also refining the single tree models behind the carbon reporting software Carbware.
