Charise Johnson

Charise came to Sense about Science as a policy associate in April 2019, shortly after moving to London from Washington DC. She previously worked as a research analyst in the Center for Science and Democracy at the Union of Concerned Scientists, where her primary areas of focus included the misuse of science in the regulatory process (especially around air pollution, endangered species, and chemical safety), public access to information and community partnership-building. She strongly believes that humour, compassion and relatability are effective approaches to communicating important science and environmental issues to the public. Charise holds a BA in Psychology, an MS in Environmental Science and considers herself a jack of a few trades.
