I am an environmental social scientist working in the Environmental Governance Group of the Social, Economic and Geographical Sciences Department at the James Hutton Institute. I have a research and teaching background in resource management, conservation ecology, and habitat modelling for species conservation in the UK and overseas. Building on this I then moved, via interdisciplinary studies on wildlife related human conflict, to researching stakeholder attitudes, collaborative processes, policy, and governance structures in relation to catchment focussed natural resource management challenges, both in Scotland and Malawi.

Recent research has focussed on the barriers and opportunities to rolling out effective freshwater nature based solutions. This continues in one of the projects I'm currently invovled in: 

Scaling and Mainstreaming Nature-based Solutions | The James Hutton InstituteEmerging Water Futures: Resilience of Private Water Supplies | The James Hutton Institute 

I have also recently joined another water related project - this time with a focus on household and community vulnerability to accessing sufficient and safe water when reliant on Private Water Supplies:

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.
