- School of Geography and the Environment
Jed is passionate about rewilding and regenerative agriculture, particularly in exploring and understanding how to encourage nature recovery in soils and their responses to different interventions. Focusing mainly on the UK, Jed has previously worked on understanding mycorrhizal responses to rewilding at the Knepp Wildland, and is now also partnered with the Centre for High Carbon Capture Cropping (CHCx3) to investigate soils under regenerative agriculture regimes. It is hoped that this knowledge can help contribute to and inform successful landscape scale conservation and nature recovery in the UK.
Jed holds an MA in Geography from the University of Cambridge, and an MPhil in Biodiversity, Conservation, and Management from the University of Oxford, with previous experience prior to beginning his postgraduate studies working in circular economy consulting. In his spare time, Jed is also a keen gardener and forager who loves to share his passions with anyone who’s keen to listen!
