Welcome to Dr Ellie Chowns

The Department of Geography is pleased to welcome Dr Ellie Chowns who joined us in June to work as a post-doc researcher on water governance and Geographies of the Global South. Ellie’s position in part-funded by the Geneva Water Hub.

In January 2016 the Geneva Water Hub launched a research network with the aim of grasping and providing answers to the scientific and societal challenges that the water sector faces. An early initiative was to fund post-doctoral consolidating grants to enable researchers to build on their PhD research to further understanding of water politics and governance issues. Ellie joins three other postdoctoral fellows based respectively at University of Geneva and EAWAG (Switzerland) and at UNESCO-IHE in the Netherlands.
