Biography

Follow me on Twitter @DavidOckwell

BSc 1st Class Hons in Environmental Economics and Evaluation (York); MSc Distinction in Environmental Assessment and Evaluation (LSE - ESRC funded); PhD in Environment and Politics (York - NERC/ESRC funded)

I teach, lead research, supervise doctoral students and provide policy advice on climate change policy with a particular focus on low carbon technology transfer and development, and on public engagement with climate change. I have led research collaborations with partners in several developing countries and provided policy advice to inter-governmental organisations (including the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change Secretariat, African Development Bank, Commonwealth Secretariat and OECD Environment Directorate) and governmental departments in developed and developing countries (including the UK, India and Chile).

Role

I am a Reader in Geography, Deputy Director (Research) in the ESRC STEPS Centre, Senior Fellow of the Sussex Energy Group at SPRU (Science and Technology Policy Research), Fellow of the Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research and a board member of the Low Carbon Energy for Development Network (LCEDN).
