Personal profile

Research Interests

Net Zero Hub Coordinator for the University of Highlands and Islands (UHI). Coordinating the development and delivery of a virtual hub covering cross-cutting themes and disciplines, enabling UHI-wide opportunity to engage with current and future net zero challenges and opportunities.

Previously, a Research Fellow on the Just Transition project. My role on the project combined my expertise in social sciences with my experience working with stakeholders and in mixed FE and HE environments. My research included working with stakeholders from across the business and third sector, including surveys, interviews and workshops, as well as working with curriculum staff and students. The project uses mixed methods of analysis to identify challenges and opportunities for skills, curriculum, infrastructure and enterprise. We worked closely with the Warwick Institute of Employment Research to look at the number, classification and quality of "green jobs" in the region. 

I have a multi-disciplinary background which spans consulting, teaching, and academic research.  My consultancy experience includes environmental management and training across a range of sectors. I also am an experienced lecturer having taught science and engineering subjects in both further and higher education. I am especially keen to develop links between business and curriculum, and my experience allows me to understand the challenges and opportunities of both. Although I have a science background my research interests are very much about people, places and the communication of environmental issues.
