Toby is a Research Associate in Land Surface Modelling at the Land Surface Processes group, Centre for Ecology & Hydrology (CEH) in Wallingford, UK.
His research area is Environmental Modelling, focusing on hydrological and ecological systems within the terrestrial land surface. This includes ecosystem dynamics (forests, savannas, etc.) and the factors that drive and modify them ranging from soil properties to landscape-scale hydrology to plant ecophysiology. Toby uses large-scale (global or continent-wide simulations using land-surface models: mostly JULES) and ecosystem-level approaches (C budgets, micrometeorology) as well as focusing on species-specific traits as and when appropriate.
