Professor of Environmental Politics, University of Plymouth

My role within the School of Geography, Earth and Environmental Sciences is Professor of Environmental Politics, specialising in climate and energy issues.

I gained a BA (Hons) in Geography from the University of Birmingham in 1987 and was awarded an MSc in Social Research in 1996 and a PhD in 2000 (both from Plymouth University). Between 1987 and 1998, I pursued a management career in the logistics sector before returning to academia to complete a PhD examining the use of market-based environmental policy instruments in the European Union.

My research and teaching span climate change and the social dimensions of renewable energy to grassroots sustainability transitions, education for sustainable development, waste management, and societal engagement with marine environmental protection.
