Jae-Young Lee

DPhil Researcher

School of Geography and the Environment

Jaeyoung Lee is a doctoral candidate at the University of Oxford’s Environmental Change Institute with interests that include hydrological and environmental modelling at the catchment scale and analysis of climate change impact on water resources and water quality. Her DPhil research focuses on understanding the role of water quality in the management of water supplies under a changing climate. Her research aims to evaluate the impacts of climate change on the dynamics of water quality during droughts and in the drought periods, and to assess the climate-related risks and uncertainties to water quality. Jaeyoung is working with the MaRIUS project’s water quality team. Supervisors: Professors Jim Hall and Paul Whitehead

Prof Anna Lora-Wainwright

Director of Contemporary China Studies; Professor in the Human Geography of China

Contemporary Chinese Studies, School of Geography and the Environment

Anna’s recent work has focused on experiences of pollution in rural China, particularly on the various forms of activism and resignation which emerge among affected communities. She is currently engaged in three projects: a study of the rise of rural-urban coalitions opposing waste incineration in China; a social scientific investigation of the processing and flows of electronic waste between China and Japan; and experiences of urbanisation and resettlement in rural China.

Dr Dave MacLeod

Postdoctoral Research Assistant

Department of Physics

Dave is a climate scientist working with on long range weather forecasting. He is currently working with governmental and humanitarian agencies in Kenya to build and improve forecast-based early warning systems for drought and floods. Such systems will help to improve preparedness activities in advance of extreme events and mitigate risks from climate variability.
