Professor Gail Whiteman

Professor Gail Whiteman is Chair in Sustainability and Climate Change at the Rotterdam School of Management (RSM), Erasmus University in the Netherlands. She is also part-time Professor-in-Residence at the World Business Council for Sustainable Development. She is a management and organisational theorist with expertise in sensemaking; her research explores how decision-makers make sense of ecologic change. She is currently coordinating a research team working on the ICE-ARC research project funded by an EU FP7 grant. She is leading the research team modelling the global economic impacts of Arctic change. Related to this work, an integrated assessment analysis of potential methane release in the East Siberian Sea was published in 2013 with Chris Hope and Peter Wadhams (University of Cambridge) in Nature on the “Vast Costs of Arctic Change.”
