Christine Corlet Walker is an MSc student in Ecological Economics at the University of Edinburgh. She holds a BA (Hons) in Natural Sciences from the University of Cambridge, where she focused on conservation and environmental sciences. After graduating, she worked as a research assistant in the Cambridge Conservation Science Group, where she contributed to a project mapping the distribution of sustainably certified crops in tropical areas.
Following her time as a research assistant, Christine went on to work as the Monitoring and Evaluation lead at Addenbrooke’s Abroad – a global health charity – and subsequently as a data management intern for the World Health Organisation. In these roles, she undertook a variety of projects spanning qualitative content analysis, financial analysis and spatial analysis using geographic information systems. Most recently, she has spent 2 years working as a third sector consultant, leading projects across a range of sectors, from sustainability and social care, to community business, health and education.
Whilst with us at CUSP, Christine will be working on our systems analysis theme. Her work in this area will primarily focus on the application of alternative indicators of societal welfare in the UK.
