Lisa has been a lecturer in the Department of Environment and Geography at the University of York since 2000, this is a part-time position since Lisa also works at the Stockholm Environment Institute (SEI) where she is the Centre Director of SEI-Y. Lisa has worked at SEI since 1999 when she took up a joint research associate position with SEI and the University of Bradford. From 1997 to 1999 Lisa worked as a post-doc at Imperial College's Centre for Environmental Technology, London, after having completed her PhD in air pollution studies at Imperial in 1996. Her doctoral thesis focussed on developing methods to assess the potential sensitivity of a range of European vegetation types to ground level ozone. Her first degree was a BSc in Environmental Biology at Manchester University obtained in 1992. Lisa is chair of the Air Pollution Crop Effect Network (APCEN). She is also a member of Institute of Biology Agriculture, Environment and Land Use Committee.

Lisa enjoys an active research role in Europe, developing methodologies for use within the UNECE LRTAP Convention. This research focus continues from her PhD studies and investigates the biological, economic and social impacts of ground-level ozone on agriculture and forests. This research has lead to the revision of methods to estimate both the deposition and impacts of tropospheric ozone using flux based Critical Levels as a policy tool across Europe. Currently she is chair of UNECE CLRTAP sub-group of forest scientists from across Europe charged with the task of developing models to assess the risks caused by ground level ozone to dominant European forest species.
Since joining SEI-Y in 1999 Lisa has also been involved in research activities in Asia, Africa and Latin America investigating the effects of a range of air pollutants (SO2, NOx, O3, SPM and fluorides) on both agro- and forest ecosystems with a view to investigating the subsequent impacts on social and economic systems. She leads the Air Pollution Crop Effect Network (APCEN) which facilitates information exchange both within the Asian region as well as with the rest of the world. This network focuses on capacity building through transferring knowledge and methodologies developed in North America and Europe to developing country regions with the aim of providing information relevant for policy formulation. She has organised a number of international meetings, the most recent of which was an APCEN meeting taking place in Stellenbosch, South Africa in Dec 2006.
Lisa has authored over 25 referred journal papers, and many book contributions, articles and reports. She is also co-editor of a book and journal special issue. She has sat on review and advisory panels for international projects, organised and hosted international workshops, has chaired and rapportuered at a many international meetings having been invited to give key note presentations and seminars at a number of international conferences.
