Biography

As of August 2016 I am a Lecturer in Environmental Sciences, teaching on the range of Environmental Sciences and Geography degree programmes. I organise the first year Research & Field Skills module, co-teach on GIS Skills For Project Work, and supervise a range of independent projects and dissertations in GIS and social science. I am also Course Director for the Environmental Sciences degrees (BSc, MSci, Year Abroad, Year in Industry).

I am a supervisory panel member for PhD student Jacqueline Zavala (visualisation for decision-making in coastal futures). I co-supervised Sarah Taigel (2016 PhD: Utilising Spatial Technology To Support The Catchment Based Approach To Landscape Management), and also worked closely with Nick Bearman (2013 PhD: Using Sound To Represent Uncertainty In Spatial Data).

I have previously been involved in various projects using visualisation to present future landscape scenarios to stakeholders and other audiences, including the RELU Biomass project, funded by ESRC and NERC, and the EU-funded RUFUS project which is working towards policy integration for rural multifunctionality. My PhD examined some general aspects of the use of computerised landscape imagery, based on GIS data, in environmental management applications, and in particular the issues surrounding levels of realism within such images.

Since 2003 I have been the Research Officer for the SSEVREL virtual reality facility within the School, and I also have responsibility for supporting GIS use for research and teaching.
