MSc, Sustainable Development (Climate Change Risk Management) 2017
BA, Linguistics 2014
I currently work on the IGov project which has proposed a fit for purpose governance framework for energy. I worked producing a free online course (you can do it here!) and am carrying out research into local policy for decarbonisation. At the moment I am looking specfiically at local authority climate emergency declarations, investigating how they are coming about and whether they will accelerate decarbonisation.
I am working on the SHIFFT project developing best practice for delivering low-carbon heat technology to communities. This is an Interreg EU-funded project.
