With a background in environmental sciences and geographical information management, and previous work on spatio-temporal modelling in agricultural landscape (LandSFACTS modelling software), Marie is now involved in modelling land-use scenarios and assessing the multi-functionality of landscapes in rural Scotland.

Current research interests

My work focuses on:

  • characterising current Scottish land uses and agro-ecosystems;
  • developing a generic multi-functional landscape modelling tool built on both LandSFACTS and previous work at the Macaulay Institute (e.g. hot-spot modelling, land capability, Scottish land uses);
  • using the tool on current Scottish landscapes to investigate potential policy or climate change outcomes on ecosystem services, through land use change scenario assessments.
