Personal profile

Research expertise

  • Since the late 1970s, Martin has conducted research in the mountains of North America, Western and Eastern Europe, and Siberia, focusing on the interactions of resident and visiting people with environmental processes, with particular emphasis on forestry, tourism, conservation, and the implementation of policies and interdisciplinary research. Over the past decade, he has coordinated three major assessments of Europe’s mountains.
  • Working at the University of Oxford's Environmental Change Unit (now Institute) from 1992, he established the Unit's Mountain Regions and Conservation Programme in 1995, where he supervised a number of MSc and DPhil students, in addition to lecturing.
  • Established the Centre for Mountain Studies in 2000
  • Started the UHI's MSc Sustainable Mountain Development in 2004 and delivers the core module on mountain issues (for which the UHI Students' Association recognised him as 'most innovative lecturer' in 2010).
  • In 2005, the UHI Millennium Institute (now the University of the Highlands and Islands) appointed him Professor of Mountain Studies.
  • In 2009, UNESCO established the UNESCO Chair in Sustainable Mountain Development at UHI, and he became its Chairholder.
  • In 2012, the King Albert I Memorial Foundation awarded him the King Albert Mountain Award: the citation states that “Martin Price, with his exceptional knowledge and his editorial competence, has played a vital role for the mountains of the world”.
