Oliver Moss

Oliver Moss is a Research Fellow/Research Funding Development Manager and (PRINCE2) Project Manager at Northumbria University. Oliver moved to the North East in 2007 to take up a Research Assistant post in Newcastle University's Global Urban Research Unit (GURU) (where he was later made a Visiting Fellow). There, he worked on the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC)-sponsored initiative ‘The Space of Democracy and the Democracy of Space', whilst also delivering 'research funding' training to social scientists from across the north east. Earlier, Oliver had helped manage the Sustainable Technologies Initiative (STI) and Sustainable Urban Environment (SUE) programme at the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (2001-2003) and, later, as a Senior Research, Training and Development Manager at the Economic and Social Research Council (2003-2007), a portfolio spanning the Rural Economy and Land Use (RELU) programme, the Department for International Development-ESRC Joint Scheme, the Science in Society (SiS) programme, and the ESRC's involvement in the European Science Foundation's European Collaborative Research Programme (ECRP). Oliver has been the Co-ordinator (and PI) of an ESRC-funded Regional Knowledge Exchange Network (North East), and has secured either independently or, in concert with colleagues, research funding from such other major bodies as the British Academy, the Leverhulme Trust and the British Council. Oliver is secretary of North East Centre for Tranformative Education and Research (NECTER), a United Nations University-recognised regional centre for expertise in education for sustainable development (RCE North East). He is also a (part-time) PhD student (Supervisor: Dr Owain Jones, UWE) at the Countryside and Community Research Institute (from where Oliver also secured an MSc in Environmental Policy, Planning and Management), the largest specialist rural research centre in the UK. His thesis - "Meteorological Imaginations. Towards geographies of affective practices of weather, atmospherics and landscapes" - concerns sensory and embodied engagements with weather and climate.
