Charlie Tebbutt

Charlie Tebbutt
Charlie has collaborated with the Universidad Nacional de Colombia to extend his social-ecological systems research into the factors driving forest fires in protected areas of Colombian Amazonia. Supported by a Global Challenges Research Fund grant, he uses participative mapping methods to involve a cross-section of stakeholders, from cattle ranchers to politicians and the forest-service, in environmental decision-making. Charlie is combining these perspectives to create models of the social-ecological system operating in the post-conflict Colombian Amazon.

Eleanor ThomsonEleanor Thomson
Eleanor is in the final year of a DPhil in Environmental Research. She uses drones and satellites to find new and improved methods to map the biological and chemical diversity of tropical forests and measure photosynthesis. While the main focus of her DPhil is on tropical forests, other projects have taken her to the Arctic, South Africa and Arizona to fly drones over the tundra, savannah and desert scrub. She is a co-founder of the Oxford Drone Society and was Oriel MCR President from 2019-20. She is also a Senior Technical Officer at Gentian Ltd., using aircraft and satellites to monitor urban biodiversity.
