I am a researcher in the Energy Policy Group, based in Penryn, Cornwall. I have a background in working with disruptive digital technologies and for a renewable energy systems installer.

My research interests include:

  • Energy Policy
  • Renewable Energy
  • Civic influence on decarbonisation policy
  • Local energy governance
  • Low carbon transport policy, particularly aviation


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.
