James Levine’s interests straddle the natural and built environments, and increasingly focus on the area of overlap between the two.  James is particularly interested in the benefits of green infrastructure – to both people and planet – in the context of ecosystem services and Natural Capital.  He is currently Co-Investigator / Researcher of a NERC Innovation Pathfinder project (ref. NE/S00582X/1) to scope, through a process of consultation and co-design with its end-users, the development of a computer-modelling platform to predict quantitatively the impacts of strategic green infrastructure on roadside air quality at planning.
