Professional summary

Research Interests

I am Head of Site at UKCEH, Bangor and also the Catchment to Coast Group Leader,  responsible for 27 staff who work on over 50 individual projects. The Catchment to Coast Group expertise covers a diverse range of areas including soil, water, biodiversity and greenhouse gases emissions. I have responsibility for management of the group, represent group activities internally and externally and contribute to cross group and science area working.

With over 20 years’ experience as a project manager within the environment sector, I manage large, complex, multi-million pound, multi-organisation projects. I currently manage the Welsh Government funded contract (Environment and Rural Affairs Monitoring and Modelling Programme (ERAMMP)) (, which delivers national natural resources monitoring and modelling to inform and develop policy and provides evidence for a range of national and international reporting requirements.

Previous to ERAMMP I  managed the Welsh Government (WG) funded Glastir Monitoring and Evaluation Programme (GMEP), which aims to assess the impact of WG’s agricultural-environment scheme, ‘Glastir’ (which pays approximately £80M to farmers annually to deliver environmental benefits). GMEP combines an annual data and sample gathering survey across Wales with scientific models that forecast change in the environment, socio-economic studies and the development of innovative monitoring techniques.
