Dr Paul Gilbert will be leaving the University of Manchester and the FAB-GGR team for pastures new in the public sector in Scotland. Dr Mirjam Röder will take over from Paul as work package leader and supervisor to Dr Zhongyuan Li.
Dr Laurie Waller joins the FAB-GGR team at the University of East Anglia to work on the societal and political aspects of feasibility of large-scale afforestation and BECCS for greenhouse gas removal. Laurie previously worked at the Technical University of Munich in Germany.
Mirjam Röder and colleagues published a paper on understanding the timing and variation of greenhouse gas emissions from forest bioenergy systems. Their work finds that the mitigation potential depends on forest management and what products are coming from the whole forest. The paper is published in the journal Biomass and Bioenergy.
Johanna has a new position in the School of International Development at the University of East Anglia as a Lecturer in Environment & International Development. Johanna has led the analysis of the first stakeholder workshop and will continue her work with FAB-GGR through supervision of the new post-doctoral research associate.
