Author Information

Jen Holzer holds a PhD from the Technion - Israel Institute of Technology in Environmental Studies, an MPA in Environmental Science and Policy from Columbia University, and a BA from Swarthmore College. Her doctoral work evaluated the research-implementation gap in social-ecological research in Europe using case studies in Spain, Scotland, and Romania, and provided recommendation that fed directly into enhancing European research infrastructures. Previously, she was a project manager for climate change mitigation and energy efficiency programs in California and across the US. She is particularly interested in improving the effectiveness of transdisciplinary science, integrating social sciences research and practice for better environmental decision-making. Prof. Julia Baird's research focuses on the human dimensions of water resources. She is particularly interested in water resilience, improving outcomes of water governance by improving processes, and agricultural decision-making and its impacts on water. Gordon Hickey completed a Bachelor of Forest Science degree (Honours) at the University of Melbourne, a Ph.D. at the University of British Columbia, and a Master of Public Administration (Executive) at the Australian and New Zealand School of Government, Monash University. He is the Founding Head of the Sustainable Futures Research Laboratory specializing in sustainable natural resource management, policy and governance. His work employs qualitative, quantitative and mixed-method techniques to examine diverse socio-ecological and socio-technical systems with a view to informing decision-making and supporting innovative public policies. He has conducted research in over 30 countries on six continents and engages in multi-disciplinary and international research teams working in collaboration with end-users including government, the private sector and local/Indigenous communities. He is presently an Associate Editor of the journals Food Security and Society & Natural Resources.
