Key details

Professor Debbie M F Bartlett

Professor of Environmental Conservation


Professor Debbie Bartlett is a Chartered Landscape Architect (Management Division) status and Fellow of the Chartered Institute of Ecology and Environmental Management. Her background is in consultancy, and she had experience of working for Local Authorities and Government Agencies before moving to full time employment in academia.

Debbie is particularly interested in the role of agriculture and forestry in shaping the landscape, past and present, and the impact on both natural and cultural heritage. Her current research focus is on the socio-economic aspects of the coppice industry and agricultural landscapes, and the role of Nature Based Solutions in restoration programmes and in addressing societal issues, such as climate change. She has extensive experience of partnership working and is currently involved in collaborations in Bangladesh, India and Nepal as well as Europe.

Student employability as central to her teaching and she enthusiastically promotes 'authentic' assessment, carrying out research in this area and regularly presenting at learning and teaching events. Close links are maintained with professional bodies and she has received 3 CIEEM awards (for industry collaboration, 2009; environmental management 2014 & knowledge transfer 2016). Debbie was elected as Convenor of the CIEEM Academic Special Interest Group (November 2019) and currently sits on the South East Section committees of both CIEEM and the Landscape Institute.
