Biography

I am an Environmental Geographer interested in the interactions between science, technology, policy, and practice in the environmental sphere - particularly nature conservation and sustainable agriculture. Two themes are currently being explored - (1) the use of evidence to support environmental decision-making in legislatures, (2) the impacts of new technology on agricultural society. I am also interested in work on behavioural change and co-design of policy.

Do contact me if you are looking to do a student-led PhD in any of these areas.

I value inter-disciplinary collaboration and thus enjoy working with colleagues from outside of my discipline, as well as outside of academia. I am working with Defra for 6 months on post-Brexit agricultural policy.
