My research interests can broadly be described as examining issues within risk perception and communication, and examining public responses to emerging and complex socio-technical issues. I have particular expertise in public attitudes and acceptability towards environmental and energy issues (e.g. climate change, energy security, renewable energy). This work is shaped by a strong interdisciplinary perspective using mixed-method research, although I have particular expertise in quantitative survey methods.
I am currently working on a project examining public values, attitudes and acceptability of whole energy system transformations, including framing and decision- making with regards to energy futures. Furthermore, I am particularly interested in public perceptions of energy security as a risk and framing issue.
