Lee-Ann Sutherland is senior researcher working in the Social, Economic and Geographical Sciences Group. She is an interdisciplinary social scientist with a background in Central and Eastern European agrarian development, human-environment relations, and farm-level decision-making. Her current work on ‘lifestyle’ in relation to land management is a progression of her research on land manager relationships with the agri-environment, where she drew on multiple theoretical perspectives, particularly Bourdieu’s conceptualisation of capital exchange, and the theory of planned behaviour. Lee-Ann is also undertaking research on farmer engagement in renewable energy production and farmer up-take of biosecurity measures.

Lee-Ann co-ordinated the FarmPath FP7 Project (Farming Transitions: Pathways towards regional sustainability of agriculture) (2011-2014) and is the first editor on a book on associated findings (Transition Pathways towards Sustainability of Agriculture: Case studies from Europe) (CABI, 2015), with case studies in Bulgaria, the Czech Republic, France, Germany, Greece, Portugal and the United Kingdom. 

Current research interests

The James Hutton Research Institute is the result of the merger in April 2011 of MLURI and SCRI. This merger formed a new powerhouse for research into food, land use, and climate change.
