Dawn is Programme Manager for the South West Partnership for Environment and Economic Prosperity (SWEEP), a five-year programme funded by the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) to apply research to benefit our environment and economy.

SWEEP’s mission is to place the environment’s ‘natural capital’ at the heart of business and policy decision-making through partnership working between academics, businesses and policymakers and through providing access to the best environmental science. It is led by the University of Exeter in partnership with Plymouth University and Plymouth Marine Laboratory.

Dawn studied zoology BSc at Durham, has an MSc and PhD in environmental science from Exeter, and then went on to undertake a NERC funded post-doc position studying invasive fish species. Dawn joined the professional services at Exeter in 2007, where over 10 years, she gained a wealth of experience in research, impact and partnership development, all within the environment sector. Dawn became the SWEEP Programme Manager in 2017.
