Organisation or Individual Expertise:
I am an ecologist with research interest in long term environmental change as well as contemporary ecosystems. This has included investigating the impacts of human activity, grazing and climate on temperate forest succession and the drivers of contemporary forest biodiversity as well as investigation of long term climate impacts on peatland ecosystems. My research thus focuses on ecosystem function over immediate and long time scales. The results of this research feed into contemporary conservation management, restoration ecology and climate modelling. I have raised over €4 million in external research contracts since my appointment to TCD. Principal funding sources have been EU and Irish government agencies. This has funded multidisciplinary research throughout Ireland but also in UK, Spain, Poland, USA and Australia. My research has involved collaboration with ten national and thirty-one international institutions. In terms of research mentoring, I have supervised 21 PhD students and mentored 13 postdoctoral research fellows since 1990. I am currently National Director of the Earth and Natural Sciences Doctoral Studies Programme which provides structured training for 69 PhD students in four Irish universities.
