I am currently working as a Research Assistant supporting Professor Catherine Mitchell in her role as Coordinating Lead Author of Chapter 13 in the IPCC Working Group 3’s (Mitigation of Climate Change) Sixth Assessment Report (AR6). I am also a Chapter Scientist for Chapter 13 ‘National and Sub-national Policies and Institutions’ of this IPCC AR6 report due in 2022.

Previously I have worked on a UK Energy Research Centre funded project examining gender balance in the UK energy research portfolio. The project combined qualitative and quantitative research in order to evaluate the representation and understand the experiences of women in UK Energy Research. The final report can be accessed here:

Prior to joining the Energy Policy Group I worked in the third sector as an Energy Adviser, helping people affected by fuel poverty.
