Research Interests
My research interests are trans-disciplinary and inter-disciplinary and international in scope, spanning geography, environmental science and cognate disciplines. They include the governance of sustainable development and climate change, earth and climate processes, climate change mitigation, adaptation and resilience, environmental (geo)politics, constructions of climate knowledge, the political economy of the state and the scale debate in human geography. I am very interested on research and scholarship that engenders place-based climate action, particularly around climate adaptation and resilience, including the role of local climate commissions and communities in driving future place-based climate action and policy. I am currently a Place-based Climate Action Network (PCAN) Associate, a co-founder of the Lincoln Climate Commission, a Lincoln Climate Commissioner, a network member of the South and East Lincolnshire Climate Action Network (SELCAN) and an external reviewer of the 2017 and 2021 UK Climate Change Risk Assessment Technical Reports.

Current and recently completed research projects include a British Academy/BEIS funded project (2019-22) entitled ‘A New Civil Politics of Climate Change? An examination of contemporary climate communication, actions and policies in the UK’ (with Andy Jonas (Hull) and Candice Howarth (LSE)) and a British Academy Policy Insight Case Study grant (2023-) entitled ‘UK Climate Commissions and Place-based Climate Action: Evaluating Policies, Governance, Networks and Scales.’
