In addition to the Science in the Field project, I also work for the Director’s Office of the Rural Economy and Land Use Programme (RELU) and have been involved in one particular stream of work helping to develop SIAM (Stakeholder Interaction Analysis Matrix), an analytical tool for exploring how RELU is influencing policy and practice and how stakeholders engage in research and to what effect. This work is helping us to understand the nature and impact of knowledge exchange processes and is also informing our thinking on Science in the Field.
I have led and been involved in teaching the following undergraduate modules:
ACE1007 Introduction to Rural Studies
ACE2009 Qualitative Techniques
ACE3017 Rural Planning, Politics and Society
