Hot Poet: Joelle Taylor
Matched with: Dr. Gareth Clay, Department of Geography, School of Environment, Education and Development, University of Manchester
Poem Focus: Wild Fire
Dr Gareth Clay is a Reader in Physical Geography at The University of Manchester. He is a physical geographer whose research has explored how fundamental environmental processes are affected by pressures, such as fire, grazing and pollution. His core research uses both natural science and social science approaches to look at the role of wildfire in our landscapes.
His work has looked at the environmental effects of fire, from how fire influences the carbon balance of peatlands through to how we can better predict and manage the risk from fires. He has also worked on projects in urban and rural settings that have looked at the interaction between people and their local environment and at how we can use that knowledge to make better informed decisions about our natural world.
