Prof Julia Patricia Gordon Jones

Professor in Conservation Science

Contact info

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 20 years on issues around conservation and development.

I have recently taken over as the director of the Sêr Cymru National Research Network in Low Carbon, Energy and Environment.

I am chair of the College of Engineering and Environmental Science Research Ethics Committee.
