Tom is currently investigating how forest ecosystems respond to degradation as part of the NERC funded Human Modified Tropical Forests programme, by combing high-fidelity remote sensing tools (e.g. LiDAR, hyperspectral) and detailed field measurements. He has a specific interest in how tropical forests are changed structurally and functionally by logging with a view to direct improve natural resource management. He has developed new approaches to identify these changes and is actively collaborating with a diverse set of researchers to trial these approaches. Tom works part-time within the Forest Ecology group and in his remaining time he works for the Royal Society for the protection of birds as a technical advisor to Hutan Harapan, a 1000 km2 ecosystem restoration concession in Indonesia.
