Lizzie Jones is a PhD researcher at Royal Holloway, University of London and the Institute of Zoology, London. She started her PhD in September 2017, investigating the causes and potential impacts of Shifting Baseline Syndrome (SBS) on conservation. SBS describes a socio-psychological phenomenon by which individuals, communities or generations compare changes in the natural environment against a single point of reference or 'baseline', often set at the beginning of their life or career. People are therefore unable to accurately perceive long-term change beyond their own biographical experience.
Lizzie also has an MRes in Advanced Biological Sciences focused on assessing cultural ecosystem services in urban green spaces and a BSc in Zoology, both from the University of Southampton.
