I’m a Physics graduate and energy researcher from mid-Wales. After completing an MPhil in Applied Mathematics I studied for an MA in Linguistics, in order to better understand social scientific research techniques. I’m currently doing a PhD in fuel poverty at UCL, under the LoLo ESPRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Energy Demand in the PACE research group.
Alongside academic research and teaching, I’ve worked in journalism as a consultant for Greenpeace’s Energydesk and most recently with the Open University on the AHRC funded project ‘Stories of Change’ as a researcher for the BBC’s Roger Harrabin. One measure of success for science is the extent to which it is understood by a general audience: in this regard there is still much work to be done.
This website contains as many of the interesting things about the world I’m able to assemble. Broadly speaking, the topics covered will relate to questions of what determines energy demand in buildings, but this requires thinking about physics, mathematics and people, as well as some more technical things about coding and data science. Above all, I don’t think anyone should have to live in poor quality, cold housing.
