Personal profile

Personal Statement

I am a Chancellor’s Fellow and Senior Lecturer at the University of Strathclyde. 

My research is interdisciplinary and applied, and addresses socio-technical transitions - often relating to geological resources, energy, water or integrated systems. Ultimately my work aims to inform a fair and sustainable transition to net zero carbon future. 

In addition to growing and developing my field through research and knowledge exchange, I am the MRes Director for the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering MRes programmes, and I teach on sustainable development for several undergraduate and masters courses. I have delivered CPD and consultancy on citizens juries, decarbonisation, life cycle environmental and social impact assessment and design, ethnography, mixed methods, and facilitation. 

I am engaged with Strathclyde's Energy, and Society and Policy strategic themes, and am a co-founder of Strathclyde's new Global Environmental Monitoring and Policy (GEMaP) Centre for Doctoral Training. 

Beyond Strathclyde, I am the Deputy Director and ECR lead for the UKCCSRC, and sit on the UKERC Research Commitee and the Scottish Carbon Capture and Storage Directorate, alongside other advisory roles. It is important to me to showcase geoscience and engineering for sustainable transition, and am co-director of Geoscience for the Future.
