Personal profile

Research interests

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 rural estates;
  • community engagement and stakeholder participation;
  • community resilience;
  • wild deer and grouse moor management;
  • sustainable rural development; and
  • rural poverty and social exclusion.


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 and deliver guest lectures on SRUC courses. 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).
