Victoria is a PhD researcher at the Centre for Environmental Policy where she focuses on the utility of climate calculators as decision support tools, within the land sector. She is interested in the multidisciplinary nature of climate calculator research and how Agriculture, Forestry and Other Land Uses (AFOLU) can be contextualised on a global scale, as well as the manner in which climate calculators interact with policy creation and implementation within AFOLU.

Currently she is assisting the EU 2050 Calculator team, working with BEIS, in supporting teams around the world to develop their own calculators to explore their options to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and help tackle climate change. 

This research is conducted under the supervision of both Dr Jeremy Woods and Dr Caroline Howe, based with the Centre for Environmental Policy. Victoria holds a BSc in Conservation Biology and Ecology (wsa) (Upper 2:1) from the University of Exeter and an MSc in Environmental Biology: Conservation and Resource Management from the University of Swansea. 

Victoria is based in the Centre for Environmental Policy and her PhD is funded by the EPSRC. She is also affiliated with both the Imperial Colleged Grantham Institute's Science Solutions for a Changing Planet Doctoral Training Partnership (SSCP-DTP) and the London Interdiscerplinary Social Science Doctoral Training Partnership (LISS-DTP).
