Post-Doc Fellow

School of Global & Public Law

Jordan is a Senior Research Fellow based at the Sustainable Development Reform Hub, School of Global and Public Law. His interdisciplinary research focuses on:

  • Bridging science and policy through natural capital accounting — including the use of international accounting standards to measure and manage environmental assets and ecosystem services.
  • Using citizen science for public policy — in particular how citizen science could inform policy and management to address the global challenge of plastic pollution.
  • Strengthening evidence for ocean governance frameworks — through the integration of multiple streams of data and knowledge to support marine spatial planning, marine protected areas and other effective ecosystem based management frameworks.
