I have experience on a wide range of multi-disciplinary research and consultancy landscape projects which involve building consensus between the public, voluntary and statutory organisations.
My main research interests lie in the field of large scale landscape planning and design; landscape ecology; sustainable landscapes; coastal landscape planning, human perception of, experience and relationship with the landscape, participatory landscape planning, cultural landscapes and landscape change.
My main teaching responsibilities at Newcastle are with postgraduate (Masters and Doctoral) students on sustainable landscape planning and climate change and planning.
I am a Director of the Landscape Research Group Ltd (LRG) and as Managing Editor of the international peer reviewed journal Landscape Research (2009-14) I helped to focus attention within the journal onto cultural landscape issues.
I have developed successful research collaborations within the School, within other Departments and with a number of external organisations.
Through my research I have been asked to participate in a number of European initiatives and research bids including funding from the Council of Europe, the EU and UNESCO.
The aim of thisjoint sessionof ICOFOM, CAMOC and MINOM is to bring together experts in city museums, urban museum issues, new social challenges, and international museology trends, reflecting on how cultural urban landscapes affect the museum meaning and its relationship with the present societies.
The session will be based on the General Conference’s theme, the Siena Charter, and the ICOM/ UNESCO draft recommendation for museums, focusing on contemporary social and cultural urban issues that city museums must be prepared to face and to manage.
I am presently working on an AHRC funded project ‘Hydrocitizenship’ under the connected communities programme.
Recent projects include the use of a Bayesian Belief Network (BBN) to explore ’Interdisciplinary methods to build a socio-ecological decision-making tool to inform marine governance’ funded by NERC under the Valuing Nature Network initiative, policy assessment in England and the UK relating to the implementation of the European Landscape Convention (ELC), green infrastructure planning and an examination of landscape change related to policy options for Natural England.
