PhD Candidate, Sustainable Consumption Institute, University of Manchester

In January 2017 I defended my PhD Thesis - "Enacted inertia: incumbent resistance to carbon pricing in Australia (1989-2011)". It described the strategic responses of incumbents to proposals for carbon pricing in four specific episodes within the last thirty years of Australian political history. I was awarded a degree subject to minor corrections.

I have had articles published in academic journals: Energy Research & Social Science, Technology in Society and (as a co-author) in Global Discourse. A book chapter will appear in a Palgrave Macmillan collection in mid-2019.
I used to be a physiotherapist (amputee rehabilitation).

For what it is worth, I think we're not going to get out of this mess, to the extent that I had a vasectomy back in 2004. True story.
