I am an upland ecologist based at the SRUC Hill & Mountain Research Centre. My main research interests are:

  • The impact of grazing on vegetation composition and structure.
  • The impact on biodiversity of declining livestock numbers in the hills and uplands.
  • Upland land-use management scenarios and their impacts on biodiversity and greenhouse gas emissions.
  • Grazing management on upland designated sites.
  • Ecosystem services in the hills and uplands.
  • The grazing behaviour of sheep and cattle on upland vegetation.
  • Sensor technology and Low Power Wide Area Networks.
  • Agroforestry and farm woodlands.
