Research interests

I am researching the role of Suitable Alternative Natural Greenspace Strategy (SANGS) in protecting the Thames Basin Heaths Special Protection Area.

I am evaluating the policy using a mixed methods approach and am able to directly impact policy reviews with my research results, through face to face meetings with statutory organisations.

I have a particular interest in place attachment and nature’s contribution towards human wellbeing.
