Personal profile

Research interests

I am a researcher at the Centre for Climate Change and Social Transformations (CAST), focusing on climate change mitigation, policy, and behaviour change. I work with local authorities and voluntary sector organisations to understand public perceptions and encourage low carbon behaviours in different areas of daily life, particularly at the individual and organisational levels. I am currently working with Cornwall Council to explore residents' and employees' readiness to adopt active modes of travel. I also have a strong interest in sustainable food systems, diet, and municipal policy interventions to reduce carbon emissions and provide health co-benefits.
