I am a nomadic scientist.  I am British, but due to my PhD research and my funders, I have moved around a lot in the last few years.  I have lived in Hungary, Italy, Greece and the Czech Republic.  I recently submitted my thesis on environmental governance.

I am an interdisciplinary researcher interested in environmental management.  Environmental management requires interdisciplinary understandings of the environment as a holistic system which incorporates society.  I conduct interdisciplinary research, across the physical-social science divide, on how governance systems consider political, social and physical factors to manage complex environmental problems.  My particular areas of interest include EU governance and implementation in the member states, and water management.

I am many other things besides.  When I am not working, you will find me training at the running track, baking in the kitchen, studying languages, or teaching English as a second language.

…My Blog

My blog is about being an inter-discplinary, nomadic researcher.    Working in numerous countries, being a PhD student and conducting inter-disciplinary research presents challenges, opportunities, and moments of both misery and comedy.  These also mean that some interesting (I think) research gets done, and some ideas emerge.  Find them all here.
