I started working on conflicts as an ecologist and slowly began to see the critical human dimensions that underpin these issues. Since then I have been exploring inter- and transdisciplinary approaches to understanding and managing conflicts. Initially, my work focussed on conflicts between conservation and game shooting over birds of prey. Now we work on a wide range of systems from Mongolia to Cape Town to the west of Scotland. Ultimately I am interested in finding solutions that minimise the damaging consequences of conflict and support coexistence.
