Associate Professor (Cornwall)

My main research interests are social movements / protest and environmental politics. My work on social movements has been particularly focused on environmental and global justice movements, although I have recently been engaged in a pan-European study of protest on a range of issues.  My other current work looks at pro-environmental behaviour change - looking especially at energy use and clothing - and climate change policy networks. I use a range of methodologies in my research, from qualitative techniques through to surveys and experimental designs.

I teach in the politics department, but conduct inter-disciplinary research on environmental issues as an Environment and Sustainability Institute (ESI) researcher. Please visit my ESI web page for more information on my interdisciplinary research:
