Research Interests:

  • Science and technology studies
  • Participatory and qualitative research
  • Food and energy sustainability


I’m a qualitative researcher working in the tradition of Science and Technology Studies. I’m interested in how a change in the relationship between science and publics can help us address contemporary challenges. I focus on socio-technical approaches to sustainable food production and consumption and energy systems.

I am currently working as a post-doctoral Research Associate on a EPSRC-funded project called Solar Energy in Future Societies. The inter-disciplinary project (physics, geography, architecture, engineering) employs participatory methods in the context of solar energy technologies. The aim of the project is to work with energy users as knowledge partners to vision renewable energy systems which are locally relevant, and to query current research and development drivers in renewable energy research and policy.

I completed my PhD in geography at Sheffield University in 2012, and I graduated from University College London with a joint degree specialising in Anthropology and Italian (2006, European Social and Political Studies).
