Natural capital, Ecosystem services, Valuing externalities, Plant Genetic Resources Underutilized Crops, Species Distribution Modelling
Recent research has focused on biophysical quantification and economic valuation of business externalities from agricultural supply chains (production). Ongoing work also includes valuing visual amenity of green space and visitation rates of pollinators in urban wildflower meadows. I have written a number or articles on the promotion of underutilised crops and earlier research focused on modelling the distribution of underutilised species under current and future climates. I am also interested in use of information dissemination and technology transfer for international development. I have produced a number of training manuals, factsheets and newsletter aimed a wide range of stakeholders from farmers to scientists.
