Biography

Colm’s recent research has focused on biophysical quantification and economic valuation of business natural capital externalities (relating to agricultural supply chains). Ongoing work also includes valuing visual amenity of green space. Colm has written a number or articles on the promotion and domestication of underutilised crops and earlier research focused on modelling the distribution of underutilised species under current and future climates.
