Dr Matthews is a senior researcher with 19 years experience of working in and leading, inter-disciplinary research across social, natural and computational sciences (nine years postdoctoral). Domains of interest include sustainable land use systems (at business, catchment, regional and national scales), climate change (risk, adaptation and mitigation) and the effectiveness of policy interventions. Expertise in the development of decision support systems is now being applied in developing processes of science-stakeholder and science-policy engagement.

He is leading the team currently undertaking scenario analysis of option for reform of the Common Agricultural Policy (CAP) Single Farm Payment in collaboration with Rural and Environment Science and Analytical Services Division. He has also undertaken strategic, applied and policy led research for Scottish Government, Defra, Rural Economy and Land Use (RELU) and the European Union.

He is a reviewer for several journals, the European Science Foundation and Leverhulme Trust. He has been a member of the International Environmental Modelling and Software Society and Modelling and Simulation Society of Australia and New Zealand since 2002.

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.
