Dr Catharina Landström

Senior Researcher

School of Geography and the Environment

Catharina is interested in knowledge about water and in controversies arising when water becomes a matter of public concern. She has done previous research on flooding and is currently working in the MaRIUS project on drought and water scarcity. Drawing on Science and Technology Studies (STS) she is tracing different expert knowledges about drought and mapping controversies associated with water scarcity.

Dr Bettina Lange

Associate Professor in Law and Regulation

Centre for Socio-Legal Studies

Bettina works in the field of environmental governance and has a particular interest in how environmental science and economics inform the use of legal regulatory tools that deal with water scarcity and drought. She contributes to the NERC funded MaRIUS project (Managing the Risks, Impacts and Uncertainty of Water Scarcity) and the ‘Historic Droughts’ project, which analyse the development of the regulatory framework for water scarcity in the UK. Bettina’s research draws on both law and sociology – in particular qualitative empirical data and social theory – in order to analyse the legal regulation of environmental challenges.
