Isabel Cotton

PhD Researcher

Isabel is a PhD researcher at the University of East Anglia. Her research explores coastal climate change adaptation and governance, looking at the social and environmental implications of the Bacton and Walcott sandscaping scheme on the Norfolk coast. The research will bring together natural science data, such as modelling of geomorphological change, to underpin understandings of social change and implications for environmental justice.

Prior to starting her PhD, Isabel worked in environmental consultancy as a researcher, and in the conservation sector in monitoring and evaluation. Isabel trained as an environmental scientist, and holds a masters in Climate Change and Environmental Policy, both from the University of Leeds.
