'Exploration of rates of tundra shrub expansion across Arctic climate gradients'
Expansion of tundra shrubs poses a serious threat to alpine and Arctic ecosystems. By comparing growth of shrubs between northern and southern base stations, this project seeks to find out if the rapid growth is due to improved growing conditions in the past two decades on the Arctic coast of the Yukon.

'The Legacies of the Repatriation of Human Remains'
The repatriation of the human remains of Indigenous peoples collected within a colonial context has been the subject of debate within UK museums over the last 30 years. The aim of this project is to explore the meanings and values that repatriation has created to better understand the legacies of the process on both indigenous communities and museum practice.
