Jane has been working at CCRI since 1998. Her main research interests focus on the social aspects of agri-environmental policy, sustainable agriculture and environmental management. She is particularly interested in understanding farmer behaviour in the context of agri-environment and sustainable soil management and in researching collaborative institutional arrangements and knowledge exchange processes which effectively reconcile agricultural production and environmental quality objectives.
Jane has led work packages on numerous European FP7 and H2020 projects, most recently Preventing and Remediating Degradation of Soils in Europe through Landcare (RECARE). She is currently leading a work package on Soil Care for profitable and sustainable crop production in Europe (SOILCARE), as well as leading a work package on the SPRINT , looking at Sustainable Plant Protection Transition: A Global Health Approach. Nationally, she recently completed work with Natural England and Defra to develop a set of social indicators to monitor and evaluate agri-environment schemes.
