Dr Matt Amesbury

Research Development Manager - Bioenvironment

 7543

 Geoffrey Pope 322

 

Geoffrey Pope Building, University of Exeter , Stocker Road, Exeter, EX4 4QD, UK

Overview

I provide research development and management support to academics and fellowship candidates, supporting the development of research proposals and budgets to a range of funders and schemes. I work in the Bioenvironment team, primarily supporting academics in Biosciences, but can provide support across the wider Health and Bioenvironment cluster. I started this role in December 2019.

Previously, I was a Research Fellow in Geography since 2010, where I undertook research on peatland ecosystems, both their use as an archive of information on past climate change and in terms of their carbon storage capacity.

Qualifications

PhD peatland palaeoclimate, University of Southampton, 2008

MSc Wetland Archaeology and Environments, University of Exeter, 2004

BSc (Hons) Geography, University of Plymouth, 2000
