Read what some of our grant recipients said about their climate change related research projects. Our grants programme develops new knowledge and advances geographical science, supporting geographical research in the UK and overseas.
During 2020 and 2021, PhD student Julio Rodríguez Stimson from the University of Oxford spent a year living on the Galapagos, conducting research into the human dimensions of climate change.
In the first quarter of 2021, Dr Laurie Parsons, Lecturer in Human Geography at Royal Holloway, University of London, undertook research in Cambodia, exploring the subjective dimensions of climate change.
In 2021, Dr Elia Apostolopoulou, University of Cambridge, conducted fieldwork in Greece, researching the right to energy justice.
In the summer of 2021 Will Harcourt, PhD student at the University of St Andrews, undertook fieldwork in Svalbard with the aim to better understand the dynamics of Arctic tide-water glaciers.
