Anne L Ryan

Assistant to Director and Centre Administrator

University of Oxford

My background is in social sciences where after initially studying with the Open University, I stepped over to take a Law degree at Anglia Ruskin University, Cambridge.  After specialising in Planning and Environmental Law I was employed by the Environmental Law Foundation, London to work on sustainability issues creating, designing and delivering stakeholder dialogues, workshops and seminars with local communities across the UK. From there I became a member of the Planning Inspectorates’ Programme Officer Group and worked on Local Plan Examinations in East Anglia.

More recently I have worked in academic and research administration in both Cambridge and Oxford Universities. I have been working in the Environmental Change Institute for the last 6 years, where I have provided support to Climate Research and Lower Carbon Futures research. I am a great lover of the music arts which inspired me to found an arts music review website in Cambridge which I directed for five years, and where I was also an active member of the Cambridge Network.
