Prof Julia Patricia Gordon Jones
I am a conservation scientist interested in conservation impact evaluation (using quasi-experimental approaches, experimental approaches and participatory impact evaluation) and the impacts of conservation interventions (including agri-environment schemes, Payments for Ecosystem Services, community forest management, protected areas and biodiversity offsets). I have a particular focus on the social dimensions of conservation and I greatly enjoy working with people, methods and approaches from across disciplinary divides.
I have a strong interest in Madagascar where I have worked, with many Malagasy colleagues, for 18 years on issues around conservation and development. I've recently have a rekindling interest in my 1st research-focus, crayfish in Madagascar (due to the rapid spread of a parthenogentic invasive crayfish with potentially huge social and ecological implications).
I am chair of the College Research Ethics Committee.
