Dr Jess Davies (Chair)

Senior Lecturer in Sustainability, Lancaster University

Jess is a control systems engineer and environmental scientist who is fascinated by the complexity of our natural world and our relationship with it as a society. These aspects come together in her research where she develops computer models of the environment to help make sense of this complexity, and works with corporations and policy makers to embed science into sustainable decision-making.

Jess joined the Pentland Centre for Sustainability in Business as a lecturer in sustainability in 2015. In 2016 she was awarded an EPSRC Living with Environmental Change Early Career Fellowship.
