Bill Adams is Moran Professor of Conservation and Development in the Department of Geography in the University of Cambridge, where he has taught for more years than he cares to remember. His first degree is in geography, and during his PhD he moved from being a sort-of ecologist to being almost a social scientist. He works on the evolution of ideas in conservation and sustainable development, and what happens when they are applied. He teaches on the Geography undergraduate programme, and the MPhil in Conservation Leadership.
