PhD Research Student



I am a PhD research student interested in the socio-economic impacts of climate policy and innovation. My current research aims to investigate the structural change effects from a net-zero transition and how some communities could become 'stranded'. I use the E3ME-FTT macroeconomic model to answer questions pertaining to structural change and technology specific transitions. 

I am part of the EEIST project team - a project that aims to develop tools and frameworks to support decision making in transformative areas. I have previously worked on the TIDE project, which examined the economic inertia of the global economy and the likely degree of capital stranding in a net-zero transition.
