Keith is a post-doctoral research assistant working in the Societies, Institutions and Governance sub-group of the Social, Economic and Geographical Sciences group here at the James Hutton Institute. He has a research and teaching background in resource management, conservation biology and habitat modelling for species conservation in the UK and overseas. He then moved, via studies on wildlife related human conflict, to researching issues around stakeholder attitudes, collaborative processes and governance structures in relation to natural resource management challenges.
After several years involvement in a UK wide, biodiversity focussed, Citizen Science project Keith is now using mainly qualitative approaches to assist in research projects to understand community responses to environmental issues including flood risk management and food poverty.
