Jenny Pickerill is a Professor of Environmental Geography at Sheffield University. Her research focuses on how we understand, value and (ab)use the environment. She is particularly interested in inspiring grassroots solutions to environmental problems and in hopeful and positive ways in which we can change social practices. As a geographer she is interested in how these issues connect, relate and entangle at different scales and in diverse places. She has worked with artist Naomi Hart on a recent project exploring industrialisation in the Kimberley region of Australia.
