My research focuses on understanding the interaction between wildlife populations, and management practices and land use. My current research includes work on mountain hares, capercaillie, and upland waders. I use large scale experiments, correlational, and modelling approaches to assess how management and land use affect individual species and communities, and how wildlife can sustainably co-exist in human dominated landscapes. I represent the James Hutton Institute on the Scotland's Moorland Forum, and I am a member of the Working for Waders Facilitation group, and subgroups.

More details of my research can be found on my James Hutton Institute staff page.
