Hutton scientist Rebekka Artz included in first ENDS Power List

Dr Rebekka Artz, Ecological Sciences
“I am pleased to appear in the ENDS first Power List. However, I see this recognition as encompassing numerous colleagues and research partners; science is teamwork and it’s the unsung heroes that should be celebrated more.”

Dr Rebekka Artz, a senior scientist within the James Hutton Institute’s Ecological Sciences department, has been included in the inaugural ENDS Power List, which names the 100 UK environmental professionals who have made the greatest impact in the past two years as nominated by their colleagues, customers, and competitors.

Rebekka has nearly two decades of research experience in the ecology and functioning of peatland ecosystems and delivered land management decision support tools, policy briefings and expert opinions on Soils and Climate Change mitigation policy matters to Scottish and UK governments for more than a decade. She has been an expert reviewer on the carbon benefits of peatland management to the UK and Scottish governments and is currently on a 50% secondment to NatureScot Peatland ACTION as the manager for the Technical Advice team. She also contributed presentations to the COP25 and COP26 climate change summits.

Rebekka’s current research includes assessing remote sensing to estimate the effectiveness of peatland restoration and monitoring greenhouse gas emissions from peatlands in relation to climate change impacts and emissions mitigation potential. She also coordinates the recently announced NERC MOTHERSHIP project, a multinational research effort to assess the risk that climate change poses to peatlands and create the capability to better manage these important ecosystems. 

On being included in the ENDS Power List, Dr Artz commented: “I am pleased to appear in the ENDS first Power List. However, I see this recognition as encompassing numerous colleagues and research partners; science is teamwork and it’s the unsung heroes that should be celebrated more.”

The ENDS Power List is compiled by the ENDS Report, a publication aimed at environmental professionals which delivers news, analysis and reference across the carbon, environmental and sustainability agenda.

The James Hutton Research Institute is the result of the merger in April 2011 of MLURI and SCRI. This merger formed a new powerhouse for research into food, land use, and climate change.
