Projects per year
I am a Chancellor’s Fellow in Energy at the University of Strathclyde, which is a research-facing Lectureship post.
My research is interdisciplinary and applied, and addresses the social and environmental risk of geological resources – often relating to energy. I use my technical background in geology to tackle interdisciplinary questions relevant across geoscience, environmental science, environmental psychology, environmental engineering and political science. These questions relate to the perception, assessment and communication of risks relating to low-carbon energy technologies, which, for many, the subsurface plays a vital role. These risks vary from the very specific or technical-facing, to broad and societal-facing, and the range of risks and impacts and decision-making processes in-between. Ultimately my work aims to inform how the necessary transition to a net zero carbon future can be implemented in a way that is acceptable to society and to the environment.
In addition to growing and developing my field through research and supervision, I am the MRes Director for the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering MRes programmes and I also teach on several undergraduate and masters courses. I deliver CPD and consultancy in decarbonising energy, life cycle impact assessment and design, environmental and social impact assessment, ethnography and reporting, citizens juries, and facilitation.
I am engaged with Strathclyde's Energy theme and Society and Policy strategic theme, and am a co-founder of Strathclyde's new Global Environmental Monitoring and Policy (GEMaP) Centre for Doctoral Training.
