I have a background in Environmental & Infrastructure Planning and Energy & Environmental Sciences, and am currently working on my PhD research on public engagement with marine renewables, a Guernsey case study. This work will focus on public understanding of marine energy but also on factors influencing acceptance and is likely to include qualitative and quantitative elements.
Future research interests:
- How is public understanding and opinion of marine energy shaped?
- How do the various local contexts impact on marine energy acceptance? (e.g. Guernsey vs. Orkney)
- What factors influence acceptance?
- How does marine energy compare to other renewables in these respects?
