Biography

My research looks at three aspects of informing sustainable land management:

  • Unlocking spatial soil management information;
  • Assessing viability and sustainability of land management;
  • Appreciating land management decisions.

Respectively, these research domains consider dynamic environments, land management technologies and approaches, and stakeholder motivations and policy goals as system components that together shape the sustainability of land management.

I have over 18 years experience working on sustainable land management in advisory, researching, and consulting positions with a focus on Africa and Southern Europe.
