Title: Centre Director, York
Role: Senior Research Associate
Lisa has over 15 years experience in the field of air pollution focussing on the effects of tropospheric ozone and climate change on agricultural yields, forest productivity and the functioning of terrestrial semi-natural ecosystems.
Since joining SEI she has developed research in Asia, Africa and Latin America investigating the effects of a range of air pollutants (SO2, NOx, O3, SPM and fluorides) on both agro- and forest ecosystems with a view to investigating the subsequent impacts on social and economic systems.
In addition to her developing country experience she retains an active research role in Europe, developing methodologies for use within the UNECE LRTAP Convention. This research focuses on investigating the biological, economic and social impacts of ground-level ozone on agriculture and forests and has led to the revision of methods to estimate both the deposition and impacts of tropospheric ozone using flux based Critical Levels as a policy tool across Europe.
She is also a member of the Institute of Biology Agriculture, Environment and Land Use Committee and a theme leader for IUFRO, the Global Network for Forest Science.
