Alastair Strickland

Oxford Water Network Coordinator


Alastair coordinates the Oxford Water Network, a University-wide initiative linking researchers working on water-related issues, to foster interdisciplinary research, communicate the activities and outputs of water research at Oxford University, and build external partnerships with science, policy, civil society and business communities. In this capacity, he is responsible for the network's internal and external communications, including online and social media presence (, @oxfordwater), events, and supporting the development of the Oxford Water Network in general.

Prior to joining Oxford, Alastair worked as Research Officer at the Institute of Development Studies, working on issues around poverty and climate change with a specific focus on Ethiopia: he continues this work with IDS part-time.
