Pippin Anderson ran the African Center for Cities’ Urban Ecology CitiLab between 2009 and 2012. This formed the basis of a Special Issue in the journal Ecology and Society (Volume 17, 2012, http://hdl.handle.net/10535/8697) which she co-edited with Thomas Elmqvist of the Stockholm Resilience Center.


Since her employment with the ACC she has gone on to take a full time lectureship in the Department of Environmental and Geographical Science at UCT.


She still retains a close affiliation with the ACC through her research work on plant functional traits in the urban context in association with the MOVE project and in ongoing work relating to her interest in transdisciplinarity.
