Research Fellow in the politics of industrial decarbonisation policy, University of Sussex

In May 2019 I completed my PhD, at University of Manchester. It investigated the strategic responses of incumbents to proposals for carbon pricing in the last thirty years of Australian political history.
I worked at Keele University, and affiliated to the Centre for the Understanding of Sustainable Prosperity. My work involves teaching on a history of protest course, researching activist biographies (interviewing long-term activists).
As of November 2021, I am at University of Sussex, at the Science Policy Research Unit. I am a research fellow, examining the politics of industrial decarbonisation policy, in the UK and other countries.

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 has recently appeared in a Palgrave Macmillan.
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.
