Christine is a PhD candidate working within the Centre for the Understanding of Sustainable Prosperity (CUSP). Her research is focused primarily on the question of how we deliver state welfare in a sustainable way in a post-growth economy. She is using both case study and econometric approaches to explore this theme.
Christine’s prior research has spanned a range of areas, including: mapping the distribution of sustainably certified crops in tropical areas (Cambridge Conservation Science Group, University of Cambridge); investigating the views of UK policy makers on measuring societal well-being (CUSP, University of Surrey); and evaluating the social impact of entrepreneurship programmes in Scotland (Edinburgh Business School, Heriot Watt University).
In addition to her research, Christine worked for three years as a charity consultant, leading projects across a number of sectors, from sustainability and social care, to community business, health and education.
