Aimee's PhD focuses on the social dynamics of farmer groups in receipt of Countryside Stewardship Facilitation funding in England and of a farmer-led group in Wales in receipt of Sustainable Management Scheme funding. She will explore the role of facilitation in these groups and the ways in which group relationships affect individual members' values and behaviours. Her PhD is funded by the Economic and Social Research Council and Natural England and she is supervised by Jane Mills (CCRI), Dr Peter Gaskell (CCRI) and Dr. Stephen Chaplin (Natural England).
Aimee's research interests include the social and environmental impacts of collaborative working in rural communities and factors which influence individuals' relationships with their local environment.
