Forest Research

About my experience and expertise

Personal statement:

I am a multi-disciplinary social researcher with experience using social and behavioural science approaches to understand the intersection between wildlife & biodiversity conservation and human behaviour, perceptions and attitudes. I have led and contributed to projects exploring the use of mass behavioural data sets to model vulnerability to modern slavery and population health, exploring the social, motivational and attitudinal drivers of the wildlife trade, perspectives and management options to reduce human-wildlife conflict, and the possibilities that citizen science presents to earth observation sciences.

Key topic areas of research or interest:

Broadly I enjoy working on anything that supports the development of socially-just solutions to the complex social and environmental problems facing treescapes and wider environments both nationally and internationally. Current topic areas of focus include but are not limited to evidence-led stakeholder engagement, evaluations of policy interventions and taking a One Health approach to forest management.

Examples of current research:

Land managers and woodland creation: The evidence landscape in the UK – Forest Research

Co-designing tree health policy options with land managers – Forest Research

Programme 5 Achieving multiple ecosystem benefits – Forest Research

Natural Resources Institute – Could putting grey squirrels ‘on the pill’ help protect human health? (



Collaboration opportunities:

Interested in collaborations which involve policy and practice-relevant research relating to all aspects of trees, woodlands, forests and hedgerows. Particularly interested in collaborations which take (or explore the use of) a One Health approach to environmental management.
