Introduction
I research the links between human health and the natural world. Previously a veterinary surgeon, I've published my thoughts on veterinary ethics, and I've co-authored an article on peer support in distance education. I also published a paper on the surveillance of a disease affecting amphibians. I am currently researching the systemic impacts of community gardening, working towards a PhD with the Centre for Systems Studies at the University of Hull.
