Thanks for visiting my research site which outlines my current research interests, links to past projects and highlights some of my research outputs including published papers, conference presentations and posters.
I am an Environmental Geographer, currently pursuing my PhD in the Centre for Environmental Change and Human Resilience (CECHR) – an interdisciplinary research collaboration between the University of Dundee and the James Hutton Institute. My research, funded by Scottish Natural Heritage (SNH) and the Scottish Environmental Protection Agency (SEPA) aims to develop adaptation strategies to minimise the impact of climate change on the conservation interests of Scotland’s standing fresh waters.
For the past three years I held a part-time teaching fellowship in Environmental Geography at the University of Glasgow, lecturing on issues surrounding the changing biosphere, climate scenarios, environmental management and global conservation strategy.
Previous research has taken me all over the world working with conservation agencies in the UK, South East Asia, West Africa and most recently living for a year in Ecuador with an indigenous community remote in the amazon rainforest. Now focussed closer to home in my native Scotland, I am keen to explore what effects projected climate changes will have on the ecohydrology of our freshwater loch systems, particularly how these changes will affect conservation strategies and adaptive management.
