Tim is a mature, part-time PGR  @RiversandPeople

Through the lens of cultural ecosystem services and cultural dis-services, Tim is investigating our relationship with chalk stream headwaters called winterbournes (in their dry, ponded & flowing phases) & chalk aquifers / groundwater.

Tim has adopted Grounded Theory as his approach, and enjoys using inductive participatory methods e.g. situated walking interviews, solicited diary, Q-method in his studies.
