Who am I, and what do I do?
I am a post doctoral researcher with roles at the University of Strathclyde and the University of Glasgow, broadly working and undertaking applied research in social-ecological studies.
In 2022 I completed my PhD which related to water- and, in particular, in the context of the 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 that interact in water relations and how it is valued (click on the tab/menu 'My PhD' for some content I am developing related to my research).
I furthermore work 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/menu 'Other work and interests' above for links to publications and projects I have contributed to).
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). I use my Instagram to link these up: www.instagram.com/couchtocairn
