Tamsin is currently on maternity leave. Please contact Leah Davis with any queries.

Tamsin joined Green Alliance in 2010 as deputy director with responsibility for leading the delivery of Green Alliance's policy programmes, for maximising the impact of its work on expert opinion, and for the management of its policy team. In 2014, she took on the role of strategy director, with responsibility for growing the impact of the organisation by developing strategic work programmes which address the biggest challenges and opportunities for environmental policy and politics, and by turning big, new ideas into ambitious programmes for change.  

Tamsin maintains strong relationships with a range of strategic partners, from business, NGOs, opinion formers and academics, and takes a lead on fundraising across the organisation. In addition to her Green Alliance role, she is a member of NERC’s Strategic Advisory Programme Group, responsible for identifying research opportunities that help deliver NERC’s new strategy.  

Prior to joining Green Alliance, Tamsin was head of IEEP’s agriculture and land management team, working in partnership with policy institutes across Europe on CAP reform and sustainable land management, for clients including the European Commission, European Parliament, as well as UK government departments and statutory agencies. She also undertook a significant amount of capacity-building work in the new and candidate Member States. During her time at IEEP, Tamsin was a member of RISE Task Force on the delivery of environmental services by private land managers in the EU; she was a visiting research fellow to the government funded RELU programme on rural economies and livelihoods and a member of its policy advisory group; and an honorary research fellow at Imperial College London, lecturing on the Environmental Technology MSc course.  

Tamsin did a three year post-doc at the Centre for Environmental Policy at Imperial College London and a PhD in the geography department at UCL. She has published a wide range of policy reports and briefings on the CAP and rural development policy, and is an experienced public speaker.
