Cropping Systems Ecologist, Rothamsted Research

Chloe is a plant ecologist exploring how the interactions between plants and their environments can be used to design sustainable agroecosystems. She is currently working on the role of crop diversity, using data from long-term cropping experiments, novel intercropping trials, and surveys of smallholder farms in sub-Saharan Africa. Chloe’s expertise lies in applying plant ecology to real-world challenges in agriculture and conservation, entailing skills from fieldwork to multivariate data analysis and communicating findings to a wide range of audiences. Her previous research has investigated weed management in South Africa, silvopastoral systems in Ecuador, and the conservation of endangered plants in Oman.

Chloe is a postdoctoral researcher at Rothamsted Research (UK), an Extra-Ordinary Senior Lecturer at Stellenbosch University (South Africa) and an Honorary Research Fellow at Coventry University (UK).
