Julia Barrott

weADAPT Knowledge Manager

I manage and curate content for and support the development of the weADAPT platform, fostering current and new collaborations with internal and external partners. I am also involved in research relating to SEI’s initiatives on Climate Finance and Climate Services.

I hold a masters degree in Environmental Geoscience from Imperial College London and a DPhil in Earth Sciences from the University of Oxford.  My undergraduate masters degree included modules in systems science, environmental engineering, hydrology, waste management, natural resources, geographical information systems and both geological and geochemical (water contamination) mapping. My postgraduate research focused on reconstructing past climate change in NW Africa, where I led several week’s fieldwork. Inspired by my time in the field and the current global state, I joined SEI in September 2016 in order to pursue a research path relevant to sustainable development, climate change adaptation and mitigation.
