Active research projects:
My PhD is entitled: Investigating the Impact of the Electrification of Transport to Reduce Carbon Emissions on Natural Capital. The main focus of this research will be to examine the effects of infrastructure changes, including electricity supply, and the potential trade-off between greenhouse gas emission reductions on climate regulation and the impact upon other ecosystem services.
This studentship will contribute to the ADVENT (Addressing Valuation of Energy and Nature Together) research project, a research endeavor funded by the National Environmental Research Council (NERC) as part of the UK Energy Research Center (UKERC).
