Judith has a B.Sc. (Hons.) in Geography from the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) and a D.Phil from the University of Oxford. She lectured at the University of Oxford for three years before embarking on a full-time research career. Judith has worked on new participatory approaches (the RELU-funded Loweswater Care Project, where participation was modelled on Bruno Latour’s understanding of ‘new collectives’); science-publics-politics relations; plant biosecurity and ash dieback; precision farming; industrial forestry; and trees. She has a strong interest in theory and enjoys grappling with complex concepts and ideas, exploring what they enable us to achieve in practice or what they foreclose.
