I do research on conservation and rural development issues in protected areas, World Heritage sites and the wider land and seascape. I link practical conservation experience with applied scientific research to better understand how human-nature relationships affect management, governance and policy processes. My current research focuses on the role of worldviews, science and ontology in conservation discourses spanning; human wellbeing, Indigenous peoples, protected areas and ecosystem services.
