Scott J. Davidson, PhD
I am currently a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Department of Geography and Environmental Management at the University of Waterloo, ON, Canada within the Wetland soils and Greenhouse Gas Exchange Lab (check out the lab twitter here)
I completed my PhD at the University of Sheffield with collaborative links with San Diego State University and Utrecht University.
My current research is looking at boreal peatland disturbance and restoration. This includes the influence of disturbance on natural and developed boreal peatlands across Canada, looking at the impacts on vegetation communities and greenhouse gas fluxes in particular. My previous research looked at linkages between vegetation communities and methane (CH4) emissions at multiple scales in Arctic tundra landscapes.
Broadly, I am interested in identifying the key biotic and abiotic drivers of greenhouse gases, ecosystem processes and vegetation community change across northern latitude landscapes, incorporating field observations, laboratory analysis and remote sensing to gain better understanding of these impacts at multiple scales.
