I am currently working on my PhD at the University of St Andrews titled 'Past and present spatial patterning of the newly-discovered peat swamp forests in the central Congo Basin. I will investigate these extensive peatlands using pollen, charcoal and XRF analyses. My main interests are based on the environmental responses to climate events and human activity during the late Quaternary period in Central Africa.


Project (1)
Understand the spatial and temporal succession of peat swamp forests across the Cuvette Centrale region in the Congo Basin Assess the similarities between vegetation, modern-pollen compositions and palaeoecological data across various environmental gradients in the peat swamp forests of the Congo basin
