I graduated with my BSc in Geography (2:1 degree) from the University of Aberdeen in 2013. Since then, I have had research experience at The James Hutton Institute working initially in social science and latterly doing soil GIS related work for the UK Soil Observatory. I am doing a Joint Studentship PhD with The James Hutton Institute and Cranfield University.

Current research interests

My PhD is looking at the application of Digital Soil Mapping to improve the spatial accuracy of national soils data and to quantify uncertainty. My principal research interests lie in major global challenges such as food security, water and environmental management and how models or collaborations, such as Digital Soil Mapping (DSM) can help or develop our understanding of these issues. I'm also interested in how applications of DSM can be used to help improve the accuracy of national soils data and quantify uncertainty.

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.
