Dr Alexandra Gormally

Lecturer in Subsurface and Society

Current Research

Ally holds a lectureship in Society and The Subsurface, which is a collaborative position between the Lancaster Environment Centre (LEC) and the British Geological Survey (BGS). Building on themes of energy, climate and communities, Ally is utilising her environmental geography background to take a critical perspective exploring societal interactions with the subsurface. Ally's research is broadly on themes of knowledge, society and governance.
