I am a human geographer, working in the field of behavioural change. I am a Co-investigator for ACCESS and I am working on co-developing the ACCESS Guiding Principles, which seek to provide new ways of working that promote environmental sustainability, equality, diversity & inclusion, and knowledge co-production. My focus is on environmental sustainability, and I aim to develop ways of working that can enable researchers to reduce their environmental impact. I am a former co-director of the University of Exeter’s MSc in Sustainable Development and have chaired the University’s Sustainability Committee.
My research focuses on understanding the role of behavioural change to promote environmental sustainability. This is focused on two areas. First, how transformations in personal mobility can take place in everyday and tourism contexts. Second, how knowledge co-production processes can be used to develop collective approaches for reducing environmental impacts. I am interested in the ways that social practices evolve and the interactions between manifestations of practices through individual behaviours and the socio-economic and cultural factors that help to shape practices.
