Dr Robin Hayward


I am the communication and engagement officer for the Leeds Ecosystem, Atmosphere, and Forest (LEAF) group at the University of Leeds. My role includes in-person outreach activities with students and the local community, as well as coordinating our web and social media profiles and working with researchers to improve the accessibility of presentations.

My communication work for the university focuses on activity surrounding trees and woodlands. This draws on knowledge from my prior research within the field of tropical forest restoration during my PhD.
