Laura has a background in forestry and environmental sciences. Recent research interests included the analysis and evaluation of pan-European geographical datasets - digital elevation models (EuroDEM) and remote sensing images (Image2006) with investigation of data quality and error propagation. Previously she was involved in the organisation of a GIS system for collection of meta-data and information from soil survey and analytical determinations. Her PhD involved the development of a simplified land-use modelling method for the assessment of the risk of heavy metal polluted soil towards human health, and evaluating the influence of planning measures on this risk.

Current research interests

The major focus is the implications of soil and climate interactions for adaptation to climate change. I am working on the assessment of vulnerability of forest habitat networks to direct and indirect climate impacts, trade-offs between land uses, and on mapping spatio-temporal relationships between ground data and remote sensing-derived information.

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.
