Daniel Padfield


I am a PhD student within the Bioscience department working under the supervision of Gabriel Yvon-Durocher. My PhD thesis concentrates on the link between body size and ecosystem functioning relating to climate change. Using principles from metabolic theory I look at how climate change can asymmetrically change different processes within the carbon cycle and consequently change the carbon flux of ecosystems.

Research interests
