Who am I, and what do I do?
I am currently a doctoral researcher at the University of Strathclyde in Glasgow undertaking a PhD relating to water- and, in particular, in the context of the sustainable provision of freshwater and sanitation in the southern African nation of Malawi. My research seeks to identify, understand and help convey some of the multiple social, environmental and economic factors and values that interact in a community's account of water in rural Malawi.
Prior to my current studies I worked as freelance researcher, consultant and blogger with an interest across a range of social and environmental issues and themes with specific experience working and collaborating on projects on sustainability accounting, climate change, living wages and urban mobility (click on the tab 'Work and interests' above for links to publications and projects I have contributed to).
I additionally develop some of my ideas and experiences, and analyse and curate external content, on sustainability/environmental issues and cycling through my blogs.
I enjoy natural and urban landscape photography, art, sport, travel and cycling- and I am at my happiest when on my bike in the Scottish countryside (except when it rains too much).
If you are interested in more details about my research, work and interests- I would be glad to have a chat. Feel free to send me an email, or message me through the contact form.
