MSc in Biodiversity, Wildlife and Ecosystem Health

Dr Sarah Greenwood, Teaching Fellow

I’m a part-time Teaching Fellow at the University of Edinburgh, working mainly on the MSc in Biodiversity, Wildlife and Ecosystem Health. I have been working on the programme since 2014 but started my current role in August 2016.

I have a BSc in Ecology from the University of Aberdeen, where I graduated in 2010. I then went on to do a PhD in Forest Ecology with the University of Stirling and The National Pingtung University of Science and Technology in Taiwan. My research investigated changes in the structure, dynamics and functioning of high altitude forests in Taiwan in response to changing climate. Since then I have continued to pursue research in forest ecology and global change and have been involved in a global research network investigating patterns of drought-induced forest mortality worldwide. I have a special interest in plant community interactions and functional traits and how these drive climate responses at large spatial scales.

Outside of academia I enjoy hill running, rock and winter climbing and mountaineering. I’m also a keen botanist (with a special interest in cryptogams), a dog walker and yoga enthusiast.
