Research

Research interests

My research interests are around climate change as a social issue, specifically looking at communication and engagement as well as research practice. I have experience mainly in qualitative research methods and using them to understand values, framing and language around climate change. I previously researched climate change communication and engagement with the older generation in England as part of an MA in Climate Change: History, Culture, Society.

Thesis

The role of research culture, practice and choices in pursuit of sustainability and climate change mitigation

My PhD focuses on understanding university research culture and practices in the context of the climate emergency, for which I have undertaken documentary analysis, participant observation and interviews.
