Thank you to all members that dedicated their time and efforts to the PEAT team
Scott J. Davidson
Position: Lecturer in Ecosystem Resilience (University of Plymouth, UK)
Research interests: Anthropogenic and natural disturbance impacts on peatland biogeochemical cycling and ecology
What got me interested in peatlands?: I’ve always been fascinated by the remote parts of the world. I spent a lot of my childhood wandering around moorland near my home town in Scotland and found myself longing to visit the ‘Great North’. I am extremely lucky and thankful I get to work in these landscapes.
What I want out of the ECR network: The opportunity to provide a diverse and inclusive space for peatland ECR’s across the world to network, share ideas and make connections.
Sung Ching (Nick) Lee
Position: Postdoctoral Fellow (The University of British Columbia, BC, Canada)
Research interests: The effects of restoration on biogeochemical and biophysical properties of peatland. Carbon budget of tidal wetlands.
What got me interested in peatlands?: I got involved with peatland research when I was a part-time undergraduate research assistance in Taiwan. Then I moved to a temperate peatland (Burns Bog, Delta, BC) which was under intensive restoration managements for my MSc study. Though switched to a forest ecosystem during my PhD, but I have been working on projects at Burns Bog here and there. Through all these years, I have been fascinated by the potential of peatlands in climate mitigation and how dynamic these ecosystems can be.
What I want out of the ECR network: The opportunity to provide a diverse and inclusive space for peatland ECR’s across the world to network, share ideas and make connections.A connected and inclusive community where ECR can exchange ideas, have discussions, and gain support from their peers, also a platform where ECR can share their research results.
