Current research interests

After studying Soil Science at Aberdeen University, I joined the Institute in 1993, and have worked on a variety of projects involving soil and/or water - everything from sewage sludge trials to public engagement, with numerous branches along the way. I don't do very much field or lab work now, but spend most of my time in front of a computer, doing a range of things from data analysis to working with Geographic Information Systems (GIS).

I am the assistant Soils Data Manager, responsible for helping to maintain the James Hutton Institute's extensive soil data holdings - the National Soils Database holds information on over 13,000 soil profiles across Scotland. I am also interested in data management and metadata, areas which are being increasingly recognised as important by our funders, as well as colleagues within the research community.

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.
