Dr Caroline Gallagher is the programme leader of BSc (Hons) Environmental Management at Glasgow Caledonian University. Her academic expertise lies within the areas of Health, Safety and Environmental Management, Environmental Impact Assessment and Geographical Information Systems (GIS). Caroline is actively involved in applied research that informs policy and practice. Her main interests lie in the area of urban regeneration and the role that community renewable projects can play in achieving this end as well as the importance of greenspace in an urban setting. The Castlemilk windfarm project is a prime example of urban regeneration and renewable energy: Caroline developed the initiative from a desktop study to one that now involves a whole community. She has also carried out similar studies for the Scout Movement, a Country Park as well as a rural community.
