Personal profile


International, interdisciplinary research on human-environment relationships spanning the ecological and social sciences. This includes research in countries with developed and least developed economies. Research in four key areas linked by two overarching, cross-cutting research themes:

Key areas

1) Interactions between people, ecosystems & their services, including valuing the environment

2) Vulnerability, resilience, adaptation & transformation;

3) Knowledge exchange and expertise for sustainability;

4) Environmental conservation

Cross cutting research themes

1) Interdisciplinary, participatory and evidence-based methods for understanding and achieving sustainability in complex social-ecological systems;

2) Sustainable learning (How we understand and facilitate learning for change, adaptation and sustainability).

Fingerprint Fingerprint is based on mining the text of the person's scientific documents to create an index of weighted terms, which defines the key subjects of each individual researcher.
