Angela Gallego-Sala (she/her)
Angela Gallego-Sala is a biogeochemist with expertise in how climate regulates carbon cycling in terrestrial ecosystems – in plain English – that means Angela works towards a better understanding of how carbon moves through the Earth’s biosphere. Currently, Angela is researching how peatlands function in different climatic zones, including the tropical, Arctic and temperate biomes (the UK and Europe). She wants to build a global perspective to understand how climate change will affect peatlands and vice versa. Angela is a Professor at the University of Exeter and teaches Geography to undergraduates, when she is not happily doing remote field work or working with her research team in Exeter.
