Dr Carver is a Geographer and Senior Lecturer at the University of Leeds. He has over 25 years' experience in the field of GIS and multi-criteria evaluation with special interests in wild land, rewilding, landscape evaluation and public participation. He has worked extensively on the development of wild land mapping and evaluation methodologies and has tested and applied these across a variety of locations and spatial scales including Scotland, England, Britain, Europe, and North America.
