The Professors: Sarah Whatmore and Paul Whitehead in Conversation About the Kennet ECG



Professors Sarah Whatmore and Paul Whitehead situate the Kennet ECG in a wider scientific context. In addition to reflecting on her participation in the Kennet ECG, Sarah talks about the philosophical underpinnings of the ECGs methodology. From Paul, we learn about the origins of the INCA water quality model in a 1990s controversy over abstraction from the River Kennet. The Professors also reflect on how transdisciplinary practice differs from their disciplinary research. This conversation provides insights into the importance of social and natural science research trajectories and personal interests.
