Summary

 

Summary

The Leverhulme Centre for Wildfires, Environment and Society is a ten year multidisciplinary research centre, involving Imperial College, King's College, Royal Holloway and Reading. As Centre Manager I oversee operational and logistical needs of the Centre, monitor the research progress and impacts, support the development of the research programmes, lead the Centre communications, and build networks and collaborations. I work three days a week at Imperial and two days at King's. 

My background is in environmental sciences, predominantly in relationships between society and the environment, including health and well-being, attitudes and values, and sustainable development. Prior to joining the Centre, I have worked on wetlands, fisheries/coastal communities, invasive species, ecosystem services, and community-based wildlife management.
