Research Associate, Transport Studies Unit and Departmental Lecturer in Geography, University of Oxford

I am an environmental geographer with research interests in the governance of complex problems situated at the nexus of climate change, sustainable energy and the environment, especially at the European Union level. Drawing from critical political ecology, science and technology studies, and interpretive policy analysis, I use qualitative research methods to analyse how environmental knowledges are variously constructed, circulated and interpreted, and also how they are co-produced with wider governance objectives and normative value judgements in specific political contexts. I am involved in numerous on-going research projects, which explore the politics of EU sustainable road transport policy, the implications of climate geoengineering for public engagement in environmental governance, and the construction of expertise in interactions between chief scientific advisers and policy makers in UK government.
