This week we are delighted to have Dr Hannah Pitt starting as a new Research Associate here in the Sustainable Places Research Institute. Hannah will play a lead research role in examining the socio-environmental impacts of inland waterways, as part of a new collaborative research agreement between the Canal & Rivers Trust and the Sustainable Places Research Institute.  The research will focus on activities of shared practice which occur either on the waterways themselves, or on the adjacent towpaths, public, private and community spaces. Data collection will extend across a number of different study locations in England and Wales, including both urban and rural settings.

Hannah is a social scientist whose research has focused on community, place, and sustainability with her PhD exploring these in the context of gardening projects in south Wales. Hannah has previously worked at the University of the West of England evaluating third sector initiatives relating to food. Hannah undertook her postgraduate study and research at Cardiff School of Planning and Geography. Prior to this Hannah worked for voluntary environmental organisations including the National Trust.
