culture + environment creating health + wellbeing engaged research

Lewis Winks

Engaged Research Facilitator

I support researchers at the centre to plan, develop and evaluate engaged research and public engagement. I work closely with Dr Pat Pinkowska and together we offer a range of support services to academics working to develop their engaged work, including peer learning, event planning, help with funding, and community engagement. If you are interested in seeking support to develop engaged research approaches, or are interested in working with a centre academic please do get in touch with us.

I received my PhD at the University of Exeter with a focus on environmental education, nature connection and behaviour change, and currently am also working as a Research Fellow in the Geography Department on the ESRC funded Education at a Time of Emergency project which utilises an engaged research approach to develop capacity and behaviour change approaches within the environmental education sector.
