She went on to gain a Masters Degree in Crop Production and the Changing Environment from Essex University in 1995 with field work being carried out at The Smithsonian Institute in the USA considering the impacts of elevated CO2 on soil and root respiration.She then worked for Imperial College considering the impacts of air pollutants on crops in India and Pakistan. In 2001 she was awarded a PhD from The University of Wolverhampton entitled ‘Soil conservation and maize productivity on sub-tropical red soils in Yunnan Province China’. After completing her PhD she coordinated the Global Environment Facilities (GEF) GEFSOC project which developed a system to estimate changes in soil carbon stocks at national and sub-national scale. She has gone on to do work for Colorado State University and is currently coordinating the modelling component of the GEF’s Carbon Benefits Project which has developed online tools which allow developing countries to estimate the GHG impacts of land management activities.
