About me

Vicky's teaching and research focuses on elements of environmental study. This includes the value of elements to the environment, such as sea water quality, and how society reacts both to the generation of these values and their uses. Vicky leads the economics line of study across different OU modules of study in relation to the environment. Recently Vicky's reseach has focused on Covid impacts upon the environment, particularly thinking about how recovery expenditure may, or may not, be described as the UKs Green a New Deal.
