Personal profile

Research interests

My research focuses on land reform and land use policy in rural Scotland. I have undertaken a range of theoretical and applied research and consultancy projects, frequently working with land managers and other stakeholders, and focussing on: land ownership  and rural estates; community engagement and stakeholder participation; wild deer and grouse moor management; sustainable rural development; and community resilience.


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 also supervise Masters dissertations on a range of topics. I currently supervise one doctoral student who is based at the University of the Highlands and Islands.

Previous employer

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