With a background in political science and environmental science, I engage in a combination of research, education and innovation activities. Broadly speaking I work in the fields of sustainability and governance. Specifically, I focus on how to accelerate the implementation of renewable energy technologies (focusing on bioenergy and biofuels for transport) and energy efficiency improvements (focusing on buildings), catalyse sustainable urban transformation, and promote education for sustainability. Recent topics of interest include 100% renewable energy, zero energy buildings, electric vehicles, advanced biofuels and the bio-economy, distributed systems, one planet living, urban living labs, greening the economy, and visions and pathways for sustainable urban transformation.
