About Me (areas of expertise/interest I can share)
I am currently on placement with a rural community development support agency called CADISPA (Conservation and Development in Sparsely Populated Areas). This is part of a MSc course in Community Education in Edinburgh.

At the moment my interests are in place-based learning and research, and the role that can play in communities determining the development and conservation of their environment
