Biography

I am a ‘home grown’ member of staff, arriving in the School of Environmental Sciences at UEA as a 'mature' undergraduate student after a career in Logcal Government and NHS management.  I went on to undertake a PhD at UEA, exploring the environmental consequences of obtaining energy from waste.  I remained at UEA undertaking research in the Risk Unit and CSERGE (Centre for Environmental Research on the Global Environment), whilst raising a young family.  My career developed to include teaching and PhD supervision and in 2008 I became a permanent member of faculty, my teaching focusing around low carbon energy and waste systems.

My research has an interdisciplinary, systems based approach, concerned with assessing the environmental impacts of energy and waste management systems using techniques such as lifecyle assessment.

Key Research Interests

My current research interests focus on a systems based interdisciplinary approach to exploring the environmental impacts of the built environment.  The combines modelling the numeric environmental impacts of construction, operation and end of life management of buildings, with the pressures and consequences of social practices and policy.  Part of this research is concerned with the increasing importance embodied carbon plays in the climate change impacts of the built environment.
