Personal profile

Personal Statement

Situated in Energy and Society scholarship, my PhD research explores the deployment of minewater geothermal energy systems in Scotland's former Coalfields. I am interested in novel approaches to business models, governance and local participation in this energy development, utilising frameworks from energy justice and transition studies in addition to theories of collective entrepreneurship and community wealth.

I am motivated by the academic tradition of deep learning, critique and space for alternative perspectives. I aim to find a balance of impact orientated work at both theoretical and practical levels that is embedded in societal transformations.
