My research interests centre on sustainability transitions towards low-carbon energy use especially in the built environment. My work focuses on the empirical testing of models of managed transitions and their policy implications. I am currently undertaking a socio-technical analysis of a managed transition towards greater use of hydrogen and fuel cells in national economies. For this work, funded by the EPSRC's Supergen XIV 'Delivery of Sustainable Hydrogen' consortium, I am collaborating with colleagues at the Low Carbon Research Institute (LCRI) in Wales, Supergen XIV consortium partners in the UK and others in the international hydrogen and fuel cell research community.
My academic background is in Geography (BA Hons) and Sustainability, Planning and Environmental Policy (MSc). I am currently studying part-time for a PhD in the spatial dimension of modelling low-carbon energy transitions. Previously, I have undertaken interdisciplinary research into attempts to improve sustainability outcomes in the UK planning system via public engagement.
I am a member of The European Association for the Study of Science and Technology (EASST).
