Dr Hannah Rudman is Reader and Co-Director of SRUC's Thriving Natural Capital Challenge Centre. Hannah’s digital and data innovation applied research and development work is grounded in interdisciplinary Participatory Action Research, which is practice-led rather than practice-based. Hannah's current interests are in how digital technologies and their data can trustably validate and prove the natural economy sector’s positive influence on carbon sequestration, biodiversity and nature improvements – digital measurement, reporting and verification (dMRV). Can digital technologies and digital data build human trust in the reporting of food quality and security, natural economy and climate truths? Hannah convenes Trustable Credit, the project co-creating open standardised processes for digital devices and their data measuring carbon sequestration, biodiversity and nature improvements.
