Senior Research fellow
Tel.: +44 (0)1707 286075
joined the Agriculture and the Environment Research Unit (AERU) as a
Research Fellow in July 2001. His main areas of interest are
agricultural greenhouse gas emissions and their mitigation, carbon
sequestration, integrated farm management and ecologically based
methods of pest control, precision agriculture and farmland
bio-diversity and conservation.
he has been involved in several
national and European projects undertaking carbon footprinting,
life-cycle analysis, and environmental impact and sustainability
assessments. Recent activities include the modelling of
explicit greenhouse gas emissions in European agricultural systems, and
their application for assessing the impact of European Rural
Development Programmes on greenhouse gas mitigation and the development
of carbon footprinting tools. Other experience includes the
the impact of insecticides on non-target organisms, herbicide dispersal
on hard surfaces in urban environments, ecological monitoring, applied
conservation habitat management and insect taxonomy.
Doug has a
BSc in Environmental Biology from the University of Sunderland, an MSc
in Crop Protection from the Scottish Agricultural College (University
of Aberdeen), and a PhD from the University of Hertfordshire in
collaboration with IACR-Rothamsted titled "The Potential of Carabidae
in the Control of Insect Pests of Winter Oilseed Rape". His Doctorate
studied naturally occurring beneficial insects as pest control agents
in winter oilseed rape and the implications for Integrated Pest
Management systems. Doug is also an IEMA (Institute of Environmental
Management and Assessment) Associate, and a Fellow of the
Higher Education Academy (HEA).
worked previously as a group leader with the British Trust for
Conservation Volunteers, a warden with English Nature and as an insect
taxonomist at IACR-Rothamsted.
