Nick Middleton’s main research interest is in the nature and human use of deserts and their margins. Desertification and drought are topics of particular focus – their causes, impacts and how societies cope with and adapt to them – as well as the hazards associated with dust storms. He also works and teaches on a wide variety of other environmental issues. His academic role is supplemented by work as an environmental consultant, travel writer and television presenter.
