I am a sustainability scientist specializing in environmental policy, currently a postdoctoral researcher at Wageningen University and Research. Broadly speaking, I explore policy approaches to complex environmental problems and climate change adaptation using systems thinking. I work with strong investment in institutional analysis and resilience theory. My work is grounded in participatory modeling and co-design with stakeholders, to foster collective learning about the socio-economic and biophysical dynamics of human-environment systems.
Having worked extensively with coastal communities and marine sectors in the Arctic region, I have grown to appreciate the innovative potential of anticipating change. Experiential methods such as participatory simulation and foresight methodologies have great potential to facilitate adaptive learning in a wide range of outreach contexts, and to engage students in active learning approaches in the classroom.

“Responsible innovation as the institutional space that governs development in sea-ice social-ecological systems, runs in parallel with the creation of long-term strategies. These strategies provide a space for the prioritization of policies and approaches to resolve outlined issues and problems, focusing on ways in which sea ice observation, monitoring, and services can aid this process.”Blair, Lee & Lamers (2020)
