Kathryn Williams is Professor in environmental psychology at the University of Melbourne.

Her cross-disciplinary research is grounded in partnerships with environmental agencies concerned with forest management and urban greening. Professor Williams’ teaching mirrors her research priorities: applied environmental psychology, social research methods, and knowledge integration for environmental professionals. She is Editor (People and Trees) for Forestry: An International Journal of Forest Research. Between 2012 and 2017 Kathryn was Director of the Office for Environmental Programs, overseeing the University’s large cross-faculty, interdisciplinary coursework program the Master of Environment.
