Charlotte Emma Louise Whitham

Charlotte gained her MSc in Conservation Science at Imperial College London in 2009, and moved to China in 2010 to start her PhD at Beijing Forestry University in collaboration with Oxford University. She graduated in December 2015, and several months later began her postdoctoral researcher position at the Department of Human Dimensions of Global Change at the Global Change Research Institute (CzechGlobe).

Charlotte’s academic and professional experiences have taken her across Europe, Africa and Asia, working with universities, government agencies, zoos and conservation NGOs. Her research interests span multiple disciplines, and are closely associated with measuring, mapping and managing human-wildlife interactions (mainly ecosystem services and disservices), conservation planning, and improving the application of research at the science-management/policy interfaces. She is keen to improve the integration of ecosystem services into the research, management and policy associated with other issues of concern (particularly climate change adaptation and conservation).
