I am interested in understanding how people can better manage our landscapes sustainability to deliver the things we need now (food, low carbon energy, clean water) while also maintaining the biodiversity that ultimately sustains us all. I have a particular focus on understanding trade-offs, as we live in an age where there are no perfect choices - everything has an impact - but some things have less negative impacts than others (i.e. renewable energy as compared to fossil fuels). My work is highly applied, and targets questions such as where do we focus tree planting in the UK or what are the relative effects of public and private greenspace on mental health. I mostly working with existing 'big data' , and have a strong focus on methods development, and questions of spatial scale, and frequently link computer and statistical models in new ways.
