Personal profile

Research expertise

My main research interests are marine spatial planning as a tool to manage the marine environment, and incorporating spatial data into management decisions. This has included the development of the Shetland Islands' Marine Spatial Plan, one of the most advanced spatial plans in Europe. The plan development has incorporated research into cummulative pressure mapping, seascape character assessment, predictive mapping and biosecurity planning.
