I am a Professor in the School of Environmental Sciences at UEA. I am also a researcher in the Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research for which I jointly coordinate the Accelerating Social Transformation research theme.

My research interests lie at the intersection between innovation, behaviour and policy in the field of energy and climate change mitigation. I work both at a systems level on scenarios and modelling of climate change mitigation transformation pathways, and at a micro level on consumer innovations, technology adoption and pro-environmental behaviour.

I joined the Tyndall Centre and UEA in September 2010 from the London School of Economics where I was a teaching fellow. I have a PhD from the University of British Columbia in Canada on the social and behavioural determinants of energy use. Prior to my PhD, I worked for a number of years in the private sector in both renewable energy finance and climate change policy.
