Jake Robinson

We are also very pleased to welcome Jake Robinson to the IWUN Team.

Jake was recently awarded the ESRC White Rose Doctoral Scholarship, and joins the Department of Landscape as an interdisciplinary PhD student. He will be combining social science with ecology and remote sensing to investigate the viability of green prescriptions.  Understanding the mechanisms by which green prescriptions are made and addressing potential constraints and opportunities are some of his key research objectives. Jake will be working alongside the Sheffield and Rotherham Wildlife Trust, who will be supporting this project in line with their socio-environmental goals.

Jake has worked as an ecological consultant for over six years and has been involved with several research projects relating to ecology, epidemiology, and sustainable community development.
