Andreas is currently PI and leading a long-term Defra project (BD5104) on peatland management and ecosystem services in the UK.
Andreas joined SEI York in 2002 as a post doctoral researcher within the Centre for Terrestrial Carbon Dynamics (CTCD). In 2008 he joined the National Centre for Earth Observation (NCEO), a follow up of the CTCD and is now leading a Defra consortium on management strategies in UK upland peatland.
Andreas holds a PhD in Biology on carbon dynamics in the mycorrhizal symbioses from the University of York and works as a part time lecturer at the Centre for Life Long Learning at the University of York and is a frequent speaker at outreach events on the science of climate change.
Andreas gives regular lectures at the Department of Environment and Geography on the linkages between the carbon cycle and climate change.
