I have over 15 years experience of working collaboratively with partners in the environmental sector, with extensive business, impact and research development, project and programme management experience. I am especially motivated to develop partnerships to deliver real-world change.
The Land, Environment, Economics and Policy Institute (LEEP) undertakes internationally inspiring and frontier defining research for government and business decision makers, to deliver sustainable social value through the application of economics to environmental and societal challenges. See https://www.exeter.ac.uk/research/leep/
During 2017-2023 I was the Programme Manager for the highly successful and award winning South West Partnership for Environment and Economic Prosperity (SWEEP). SWEEP was a six-year impact programme funded by the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) which applied environmental research to bring natural capital into the heart of decision making, to benefit the environment, society and economy. It was an exemplar of best practice in the South West of the UK. See www.sweep.ac.uk.
During 2021-2023 I was the Joint Centre for Excellence in Environmental Intelligence (JCEEI) Centre Manager. The JCEEI undertakes cutting-edge research and innovative, interdisciplinary education and training. It brings together exciting new science and environmental knowledge with data science and artificial intelligence. Together world-leading researchers from the University and the Met Office are spearheading the development of Environmental Intelligence and promoting the UK as a global trailblazer in this fast-growing field. See http://www.jceei.org.
I studied zoology BSc at Durham University, have an MSc and PhD in environmental science from the University of Exeter, and then went on to undertake a NERC funded post-doc position studying invasive fish species. I joined the professional services at Exeter in 2007, gaining a wealth of experience in research, impact and partnership development, all within the environment sector. I am also a qualified Managing Successful Programmes (MSP) practitioner.
