Personal profile

Research interests

My research interests focus on the synthesis and analysis of data and information from cropping and livestock systems. Key interests include:

  • how agricultural systems impact on the environment and how an understanding of these issues can inform economic and social models of the farming system
  • the role of legumes on the sustainability of cropping systems
  • rotation management on the sustainability of the system
  • nutrient flows/budgets in agricultural systems
  • impact of climate on agricultural systems

I have extensive experience of EU funded research programmes and other multi-partner projects and data management within these projects.
