Professor of Environment and Policy
Department of Geography, University of Cambridge
Susan has researched and published widely in the field of environmental governance. Her current projects are concerned with relations between science and politics, and with the role of argument, evidence, ideas and advice in policy formation and change. She has also worked extensively on interpretations of sustainable development in theory and practice, particularly in the context of land use and environmental planning. Recently she have become interested in the 'subversive' functions of planning, exploring connections between planning conflicts (especially those concerned with contentious technologies and infrastructures) and developments in wider domains of public policy.
