Personal profile

Research interests

I am a transdisciplinary researcher with expertise in rural policy, environmental governance and community resilience. I have undertaken a range of theoretical and applied research and consultancy projects, frequently working with land managers, community representatives and other stakeholders, and focussing on:

  • land reform, land ownership and land use policy;
  • community and stakeholder engagement, social learning and deliberative processes;
  • community resilience and capacity building;
  • rural poverty and social exclusion; and
  • sustainable rural development.

Teaching

I am an Honorary Lecturer at the University of Edinburgh. I teach 'Participation in Policy and Planning', a postgraduate module on the SRUC/University of Edinburgh MSc Ecological Economics programme. I am an experienced trainer and IAP2 accredited facilitator.

I supervise Masters dissertations on a range of topics and deliver guest lectures on several SRUC and University of Edinburgh courses. 

Previous employer

I was a Researcher at the Centre for Mountain Studies at Perth College, University of the Highlands and Islands (2010-2019).
