Personal profile

Personal Statement

Rebecca joined the University of Strathclyde in 2019 as a Chancellor's Fellow working jointly between the Departments of Government & Public Policy and Electronic & Electrical Engineering. She is also the Research Director of the UK’s Energy Revolution Research Consortium (EnergyREV). Prior to this Rebecca held positions at the University of Oxford, the University of Otago in New Zealand (where she served as Deputy Director of their Centre for Sustainability) and at Victoria University of Wellington.

Rebecca's research explores how people interact with energy systems, and how social, environmental, and technological insights can be co-developed to better inform policy for sustainable development. She takes a multidisciplinary approach to her work, and believes in the importance of research for impact, and in bridging the gap between different forms of knowledge to advance solutions tackling climate change.
