James has a background in geology with an emphasis on terrain analysis and modelling using GIS. Prior to joining the Macaulay in March 2010 he spent four years working for the British Scenery Project, looking at how geological and geomorphological processes have shaped the UK landscape.

Current research interests

James is currently working with flow and turbidity data from the Lunan Monitored Priority Catchment. The aim is to assess whether continuous measurements from turbidity probes offer a relatively cost effective and useful means of monitoring water quality compared to infrequent spot-sampling.

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.
