Mr Guy Lomax
My PhD research focuses on using satellite remote sensing data for monitoring of land degradation and resilience in rangeland ecosystems, in collaboration with a community conservation organisation in Northern Kenya. I am funded by UKRI through the Centre for Doctoral Training in Environmental Intelligence.
I began my PhD studies following five years working at The Nature Conservancy on land sector pathways to climate change mitigation (Natural Climate Solutions) including conservation agriculture, agroforestry and sustainable wood products. I am interested in how research can be most effectively used to support environmental policy and practice.
My wider research interests include:
- Remote sensing for real-time monitoring and management of ecosystems
- Nature-based solutions to climate change mitigation and adaptation
- The role of carbon dioxide removal in climate change mitigation
- Building sustainable food systems in a world of growing demands for food and energy
