Chris Freeman is currently Professor of Peatland Biogeochemistry at Bangor University where he heads the Wolfson Peatland Carbon Capture Laboratory. He moved to Bangor in 1986, after gaining a part-time BSc at Nottingham Trent University.
On gaining a PhD in Bangor, he went on to conduct postdoctoral research at the Institute of Terrestrial Ecology (now formally known as CEH) until 1994. He was awarded a Royal Society University Research Fellowship that year, and held the Fellowship in Bangor.
He has since been appointed as Lecturer (2002), Senior Lecturer (2003), and then Professor (2005) at that University. His research interests focus on the causes of the unusually high capacity of peatlands for carbon sequestration, and the role of that ecosystem in influencing climate change. Chris has been a contributing author to more than 90 refereed publications.
