I have been Principal Investigator on a number of major research commissions and a series of more minor projects dealing with a range of issues concerning people and environment. I have been a co-investigator on a number of other projects. Since 1990 I have been instrumental in winning and successfully completing research projects worth in excess of £1 million.


The links below outine some of these projects and in some cases lead to resources developed from them.
