My research activity concentrates on understanding the key biological processes that maintain biodiversity. In other words, what acts as the glue to hold ecosystems together? I am particularly interested in the factors that determine species abundance in space and time. There is a particular emphasis on diverse plant communities such as tropical forests, but group member have also studied bacteria, protist and vertebrate communities.

Topic keywords:
theoretical ecology; evolutionary ecology; coexistence; spatial patterns; spatial statistics; competition; predation; community ecology; functional diversity;

Taxonomic groups of interest:
Annual plant communities
Tropical plant communities
Lichen ecology of London

My research focuses on the investigation time-scales of magmatic processes and pre-eruptive magma degassing conditions at active volcanoes, magmatic processes at subduction zones, lithosphere evolution and relationships between magmatism and tectonics. I approach these problems using geochemical analysis and micro-analytical techniques.
