    UEA Self Funded PHD: Where technology and agricultural society meet – Exploring the spaces and places of interaction

    New technologies, including decision support tools, may contribute to the sustainable intensification of agriculture by improving productivity and efficiency. While much research has sought to increase the uptake of technologies in practice, largely by identifying desirable characteristics of system design, rather little work has used a spatial lens to investigate how they are actually used. Furthermore, while there are studies about how technology re-scripts, or changes, agricultural societies, these are generally concerned with macro-level impacts (e.g. labour changes), rather than exploring the farm-scale. The primary supervisor has been interested in research looking at how new technologies affect agricultural society, exploring the scales at which farming is changed by them. For example, new technologies can change what farming means to a farmer, and affect how they interact with the different spaces within their farm.

    Secondary supervisor: Professor Andrew Lovett.
