Introduction
I am an agricultural and environmental economist by background. My research interests include factors driving behavioural change with regard to ecosystem management; impact from research and its evaluation, socio-economic analysis of catchment solutions, peatlands, agricultural policies

Article
Studies on the design of agri-environmental payments have proposed agglomeration payments to address cases where coordination is required to achieve sustainable outcomes, and differentiated instead of uniform payments to address cost heterogeneity of land users. In this paper, we combine the two. We develop an economic experiment to test the enviro...
Article
Full-text available
Evidence of the impact arising from environmental research is increasingly demanded. Exchanges between science providers and actors that use scientific knowledge to address environmental problems are recognized as a key component of the mechanisms through which impact occurs. Yet, the role of interactions between science and policy actors in delive...
Article

Background Interest in impact evaluation has grown rapidly as research funders increasingly demand evidence that their investments lead to public benefits. Aims This paper analyses literature to provide a new definition of research impact and impact evaluation, develops a typology of research impact evaluation designs, and proposes a methodologica...
Article
Efforts to tackle diffuse water pollution from agriculture are increasingly focusing on improving farmers' awareness under the expectation that this would contribute to adoption of best management practices (BMPs) and, in turn, result in water quality improvements. To date, however, no study has explored the full awareness-behaviour-water quality p...

Nature Based Solutions (NBS) are classified by the European Commission (EC) as addressing societal challenges by providing solutions that are inspired and supported by nature, which are cost-effective, simultaneously provide environmental, social, and economic benefits and help build resilience. Implementation of NBS across urban and rural landsca...
Article
Major common production activities on organic soils require drainage, which results in the loss of important ecosystem services such as carbon storage. This paper provides an overview of the farming situation on organic soils in a western region of Switzerland characterized by intensive vegetable farming and therefore by high opportunity costs of a...
Article
Full-text available
Peatlands are the most efficient terrestrial carbon store. They also provide multiple benefits such as clean water and habitat for wildlife. However, historically peat has been used for fuel and today peatland landscapes continue to be adversely affected by burning, drainage, and forest plantation. These activities result in very large areas of pea...
Article
Degradation of organic soils leads to substantial greenhouse gas emissions. Preservation of these soils is in conflict with their current intensive use, as preservation would require restricting drainage. Due to spatial interdependencies of organic soil areas, rewetting these soils requires cooperation among farmers. Agglomeration payments are a po...
Article
Agriculture faces huge challenges regarding sustainable use of soils and its sustainability performance in general. There are three different approaches to sustainable agricultural production commonly proposed, namely intensification, agro-ecological approaches and high-tech industrial approaches. Often, some propose that only agro-ecological appro...

Project
The Moors For the Future Partnership (MFFP) and the Yorkshire Peat Partnership (YPP) together with the University of Leeds have developed a guide to help peatland restoration practitioners and anyone interested in peatlands value the socio-economic benefits of their restoration. They have also worked on producing a user-friendly digital model (DigiBog_Hydro) to inform where and what peatland restoration activities can do to optimise ecosystem service delivery.
Project
iCASP focuses on translating environmental science into useful tools and processes to create social and economic benefits to Yorkshire. Through creating a dialogue and common understanding between researchers and stakeholders in the catchment, iCASP aims at engaging various stakeholders to foster integrated catchment management and generate transformative impacts for the region.
