Personal profile


My PhD research 'Scientising the Environment' looked at the history of ENV here at UEA to explore how the 'environment' became an object of knowledge to be made known through scientific interdisciplinarity. I explored through 4 case studies how ENV came to be imagined and founded at UEA in the 1960s, how interdisciplinarity figured and was practiced in the first decade and how the physical 'environmental sciences' evolved to include climate and social sciences - from the local to the global. I conclude by resituating histories of the 'environmental sciences' in conceptual and practical debates about the 'Anthropocene'. 

I am now working on mapping diverse forms of participation with nature, biodiversity and wastewater management. I remain interested in the histories and politics of environmental knowledge, particularly in a British context.

My background is in environmental sciences and human geography. I completed a BSc in Environmental Earth Sciences here at UEA in 2016, before studying an MSc in Environment, Politics and Society at University College London (UCL) in 2017.
