Research student, School of Geography and Planning

I am researching the impacts of increasingly industrialised forms of agriculture and how they impact rural communities. My  research is focusing on Herefordshire and Shropshire where I live. 

I have many years experience of research and consultancy in public, private and academic contexts, largely specialising in rural tourism development particularly:

  • outdoor recreation, walking, cycling etc
  • sustainable and slow tourism
  • market town and rural regeneration
  • partnership working and community involvement
  • heritage interpretation and sense of place
