About me and my research interests
I am a lecturer in Ecological Economics in the School of Environmental Sciences teaching a third year and MSc module in Natural Resources and Environmental Economics (ENV-6012B, ENV-7116B). I am a member of the Centre for Social and Economic Research on the Global Environment (CSERGE) and the 3S (Science, Society & Sustainability) Research Group.
My broad research interests focus thematically on water resources management in times of change and integrating ecosystem services (including cultural ecosystem services) in decision-making. This has involved using non-market methods to monetarily value urban green space, instream flows and ecosystem services in water scarce environments, market-based instruments design as part of basin scale water resources management reform and restoration, as well as, several studies on sustainable agriculture.
I am interested in supervising or co-supervising PhD students in these research areas. Please check out PhD funding at the university, e.g. https://senss-dtp.ac.uk/ and elsewhere, e.g. http://cscuk.dfid.gov.uk/apply/applicants/
