Postdoctoral Research Associate, Next generation forest dynamics modelling using remote sensing data (UKRI FLF).

Harry is a postdoc in the department of Geography and interested in the application of remote sensing techniques to understand forest structure and function. Harry’s work mostly focuses on the use of terrestrial and drone laser scanning data to characterise individual tree structure in three dimensions. A large component of his work involves developing new ways to extract ecologically meaningful metrics from these new datasets to answer questions around how trees compete for space and assemble a forest canopy along varying biotic and abiotic gradients.

Prior to joining the group, Harry was a remote sensing research technician at the Institute of Zoology London, and then went on to complete his PhD at Queen Mary University, where he studied the three-dimensional structure of Mediterranean forests.
