Dr. Elena Vanguelova joined Forest Research in June 2003 as a biogeochemist. She studied for a BSc / MSc degree in Forest Engineering at The University of Forestry in Sofia, Bulgaria. Then she moved to the UK, where she obtained a PhD in soil pollution from Soil Science Department, Reading University.

Current role
