I am a post-doctoral research assistant working in the Environmental Governance and Land Management 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 biology and habitat modelling for species conservation in the UK and overseas. I then moved, via studies on wildlife related human conflict, to researching issues around stakeholder attitudes, collaborative processes and governance structures in relation to natural resource management challenges.

After several years involvement in a UK wide, biodiversity focussed, Citizen Science project I am now using mainly qualitative approaches to assist in research on catchment partnerships and associated governance structures, understanding community responses to environmental issues including flood risk management and food poverty, and how to work with policy and stakeholders to achieve multiple benefits, at scale, on the ground. Further water resource management research involves the implementation of the sector wide approach and development of regulatory processes in Malawi which is being undertaken as part of the Scotland Malawi Scotland Regulatory Partnership.

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.
