Christine is a PhD candidate working within our systems analysis theme. Her research is focused primarily on the question of how we deliver societal well-being in a post-growth economy. She is using both case study and econometric approaches to explore the relationship between various components of well-being and economic growth.

Christine’s prior research has spanned a range of areas, including: mapping the distribution of sustainably certified crops in tropical areas (Cambridge Conservation Science Group, University of Cambridge); investigating the views of UK policy makers on measuring societal well-being (CUSP, University of Surrey); and evaluating the social impact of social entrepreneurship programmes in Scotland (Edinburgh Business School, Heriot Watt University).

In addition to her research, Christine worked for three years as a consultant with charities and NGOs, leading projects across a range of sectors, from sustainability and social care, to community business, health and education.

Christine holds an MSc in Ecological Economics from the University of Edinburgh, and a BA (Hons) in Natural Sciences (Zoology) from the University of Cambridge.
