Personal profile


I started in 2021 as a lecturer feeding into the teaching on Environmental Management and Wildlife Conservation Management streams. 

Prior to this, I was at The University of Salford conducting a PhD. looking at the health and wellbeing improvements that the use of nature can provide ageing populations.  This was a mixed methodology research project bringing in the use of semi-structured interviews, blood sampling, and health ranking tools.

I also have a master’s degree (MSc) in Environmental Sustainability from the University of Edinburgh, and a BSc in Sustainable Environmental Management, from Scotland’s Rural College (SRUC) and awarded by The University of Edinburgh.

I am very passionate about understanding how environments can be used sustainability by populations, predominately for health and wellbeing purposes. Alongside this, I am also really interested in other aspects of the geographical/environmental field including; representing vulnerable communities, the ethical complications of research, methodological innovation, energy technologies, planning/policy, innovative GI technologies, (in)justice, empowerment, and activism.


Currently, I am teaching a variety of courses from the first to the fourth year at SRUC, including Rural Planning & Environmental Assessment, Rural Land Use, Biology, and Ecology & Ecosystems.

Before SRUC, I lectured in modules including a Contemporary Issues and Environment and Wellbeing, with undergraduate students (levels 4, 5, and 6/ SCFQ 7, 8, 9, 10), covering topics such as impacts on health (including the use of Social Prescriptions), inequalities (linked to socio-environmental aspects of life) and justice, environmental legislation and planning.
