Biography

My academic background is in human geography and since I moved to UEA in 1990 I have been involved in a range of projects concerned with applications of GIS, landscape visualisation software and statistical techniques.

At present I have a particular interest in issues of future rural land-use change, including research on renewable energy systems funded by the UK Energy Research Centre (http://www.ukerc.ac.uk) and the Social, Economic and Environmental Research (SEER) project into Multi-Objective Land Use Decision Making funded by the ESRC (http://www.cserge.ac.uk/current-research-projects/seer). I am also co-leader of the Wensum Demonstration Test Catchment project (http://www.wensumalliance.org.uk) funded by Defra and the Environment Agency.
