Dr Jonathan Clarke is a Research Fellow in the Resilient Cities Laboratory. His work considers the roles of design, planning and governance in identifying and responding to future urban challenges, with a particular focus upon comparative, international security arrangements and deliberative approaches to local decision making.

His contribution to the Horizon 2020-funded RESILENS (Realising European Resilience for Critical Infrastructure ) project reflects upon how the resilience of critical infrastructure might be enhanced, how a wider range of stakeholders might be integrated and how social factors can extend risk management practices, as means to initiate more transformative practice and long-term thinking within the sector. He joined PAIS and the ResCityLab as a Doctoral Research Student in 2013 contributing to the DESURBS and HARMONISE FP7 Research projects, where his research explored the role that urban design and governance might make to enhanced city resilience, based upon on an inductive approach of learning from practice.

In addition to his academic work, Jonathan is an experienced urban designer, planner and chartered landscape architect, specialising in regeneration, masterplanning, environmental impact assessment and public realm design. He is a professional practice examiner for the Landscape Institute, a design expert for MADE and an external tutor at the University of Sheffield’s Department of Landscape.
