I teach Masters-level forestry students Social Issues in Forest Management, Sustainable Use of Non-Timber Forest Products, Distance Learning Dissertation and contribute to other forestry modules. Prior to teaching, I spent 14 years working in Wales’ national environmental body, Natural Resources Wales (formally Environment Agency) before embarking on doctoral research. With experience in ecological monitoring and assessment, pollution prevention and conservation management, my current research interests are in soil function and hydrology, particularly the interaction between trees, soil and water. My research with the Multiland project asks what role trees can play in Natural Flood Management (NFM) and I have a strong bias towards applied research.
