Fabrice Renaud

Head of School of Interdisciplinary Studies, University of Glasgow, Scotland
Fabrice Renaud is a Professor of Environmental Risk and Community Resilience at the University of Glasgow's School of Interdisciplinary Studies in Dumfries, which he joined in February 2018.

He is also a Research Director for the National Centre for Resilience, an organisation which aims to build Scotland's resilience to natural hazards.

Before joining the University of Glasgow, he worked for 13 years at the United Nations University Institute for Environment and Human Security (UNU-EHS) in Bonn, Germany (11 years) and Jakarta, Indonesia (2 years). For over a decade, he was head of the Environmental Vulnerability and Ecosystem Services section of UNU-EHS implementing research focussing on two major themes: the environmental dimension of vulnerability and risk, particularly in coastal and deltaic environments, and the links between human activities, water pollution, and the risks these pose to ecosystems and human health. His research projects were principally in Europe, Central, South and Southeast Asia, and in West Africa. He convened a course on Ecosystems and ecosystem services in the context of disaster risk reduction & climate change adaptation of the joint UNU-EHS/University of Bonn MSc Programme Geography of Environmental Risks and Human Security and taught many other courses at UNU-EHS and other venues. For a period of two years (2009-2011) he was Director ad interim of the UNU-EHS.

After completing his PhD and before joining the UN system, he was a Research Officer at Cranfield University’s Centre for EcoChemistry in the UK where his research centred on the development, coding and parameterisation of various pesticide fate models, as well as carrying out laboratory and lysimeter experiments to study the interaction between pesticides and soils.

Between his MSc and PhD degrees, he worked in Namibia on a rural development project and at the International Board for Soil Research and Management in Thailand on soil erosion problems in the north of the country.

He holds a PhD degree (2000) in Crop, Soil, and Environmental Sciences from the University of Arkansas (Fayetteville, USA) where he specialised in soil physics.

His MSc degree (1992) in Agricultural Engineering is from Cranfield Institute of Technology (now Cranfield University) in the UK and he was awarded a Diplôme d’Études Supérieures des Techniques d’Outre-Mer in Tropical Agro-economy in 1991 from the Institut Supérieur Technique d’Outre-Mer (now École supérieure d'agro-développement international) in France.
