DEMAND - Dynamics of Energy, Mobility and Demand

I research how social practices change, especially the part that individual lives, institutions, the professions and policy interventions play in these processes. I'm currently researching these themes in relation to sustainability and climate change policy, and my latest project is looking at how the planning professions make and shape demand for energy and mobility.

Recent work includes a report about the relevance of theories of practice for sustainability policy and a historical case study that revisits an example of 'behaviour change' - the use of seatbelts in the UK . I curated, with Dan Welch, the Exhibition of the Sustainable Practices Research Group - part of the SPRG's finale, which was held on 11th September 2013, in London. This attracted a broad audience from policy, business, NGOs and academia (click for further details>>).
