Christianne is a PhD researcher within the Centre for Climate Change and Social Transformations at Cardiff University. Her mixed methods research is concerned with understanding how COVID-19 – which constitutes a large-scale, exogenous ‘moment of change’ – has affected a range of environment-related lifestyle behaviours, attitudes and intentions.
Christianne holds Masters degrees in Social Psychology, Environmental Sustainability and Green Technology, and Business Administration, as well as Bachelors degrees in Biological Sciences and Psychology. Before returning to full-time academia, she spent several years in the Royal Air Force working in learning and organisational development, policy formulation, and strategic planning, after which she became the head of a leadership and management research programme in a defence and security institute.
In addition to her research work, Christianne is a Trustee of the Worcestershire Wildlife Trust and the Chair of the Board of the UK River Restoration Centre, an environmental, not-for-profit organisation which provides expert advice, information and training on the restoration and management of rivers and catchments.
