Research

The core of my research work aims to provide a contribution to social science research on energy by addressing the following gaps:

  • The effectiveness of digital technologies and social innovation to reduce individual energy consumption in the short and long-term
  • The impact of participation in a social innovation in energy on individual energy behaviour

I am supervised by Dr. Steve Sorrell and Dr. Mari Martiskainen. 

I am working in the H2020 project SONNET (Social Innovation in Energy Transitions) which will work with a range of stakeholders from across energy initiatives in the community, industry, academia, government, councils, and local actors to create a better understanding of social innovations in the energy sector, critically assessing the success, contributions and future potential of social innovation.
