Dr Guy Jackson

Assistant Professor

Department: Social Sciences

I received a PhD in Human Geography from The University of Queensland (2020). My doctoral research illuminated the influence of emergency food aid on the root causes of disaster vulnerability in Indigenous food systems. Between 2021 and 2023 I held a Postdoctoral Fellowship at Lund University Centre for Sustainability Studies (LUCSUS), where I worked on a large project exploring the social, environmental, and political dimensions of climate change loss and damage. I am currently a Vice Chancellor Fellow (Assistant Professor) at Northumbria University, Department of Social Sciences. I also remain a Guest Researcher at LUCSUS.

Guy Jackson

My research interests cover the broad domain of human-environmental relations. I explore human-environmental relations through the examination of social, cultural, and political impacts of, and responses to, disasters, climate change, and environmental change. I am currently working on research projects exploring climate change loss and damage, cross-scale climate adaptation, and climate immobilities. I have undertaken ethnographic research in Australia, Papua New Guinea, and Vanuatu and will be doing fieldwork in Sweden and the United Kingdom over the coming years.
