Research Overview

My research is inspired by theories of technological and social change, which I apply and develop in relation to sustainability, digital technologies and data in everyday life. Much of my work is interdisciplinary and collaborative, and involves a combination of methods, including fine-grained energy and environmental sensor data, interviews and diaries. As a sociologist, I use this research to advance theories of practice, as well as contributing sociological insights and approaches to the fields of energy research and human computer interaction.

My current research, as part of the DEMAND Centre at Lancaster University, investigates the changing roles of digital devices and services in the home, the implications for shifting patterns of energy demand and their relevance for climate change and energy policy.
