A considerable proportion of my work is collaborative, and I am fortunate to have worked with some outstanding people in the past. Here is a list of my current collaborators, loosely organised by country, together with a couple of notes here and there:
Prof. Timothy M. Lenton (Earth System Science, University of Exeter, UK). Tim was my postdoc advisor when I was a Marie Curie fellow in his Earth System Science group at Exeter (http://lifesciences.exeter.ac.uk/research/ess/). We are just writing up various strands of the research I undertook as part of my fellowship, which was entitled "Miocene Vegetation of the African Tropics".
Prof. Richard J. Twitchett (Earth Sciences, Natural History Museum, UK)
Dr Barry Lomax (Plant Science, Nottingham University, UK)
Anne-Marie Culhane (http://www.amculhane.co.uk). Together with Tim Lenton and Thomas Powell, I co-hosted the Anne-Marie in the Earth System Science group at the University of Exeter. Anne-Marie worked on a residency entitled "Exeter Enquires", which resulted in a collaborative project entitled "Earthwalking" – a two-day walk along the East Devon coast to explore the Earth as a living system through stories of the sea and land, time and change.
Prof. Wolfram M. Kürschner (University of Oslo, Norway)
Dr Surangi W. Punyasena (Plant Biology, University of Illinois, USA). I was a postdoc in Surangi's lab at the University of Illinois at Urbana–Champaign (https://publish.illinois.edu/punyasena/). I undertook research as part of her NSF grant "Biological Shape Spaces, Transforming Shape into Knowledge", which also included Washington Mio and Charless Fowlkes (see below).
