About the organisation(s) I've worked for

Organisation name:

Forest Research

About my experience and expertise

Personal statement:

I am an experienced researcher with proven project management skills and I have worked as an environmental social scientist in a range of sectors. My main interests relate to land use and environmental policy and I use a mixture of quantitative and qualitative methodologies in my work. This has resulted in peer-reviewed academic publications as well as more accessible forms of science communication.

Key topic areas of research or interest:

My early career was focused on agri-environment schemes, but in recent years I have been working on tree policy, including in relation to local authority guidance, pests and disease management, public values of trees, encouraging access to woodland and the impacts of development on ancient woodland.
