I am interested in the connections between social practices, energy use, supply, and the production of spaces. My current research focuses on the constitution of energy demand in cities and what this means for attempts to meet net zero. This involves investigating how demand materialises in cities over time, in terms of the ordering of consumption and supply. My work contributes to discussions about how demand is made and met at different spatial scales and what is called for in response in order to accelerate net zero transitions.

My broader interests include: relational spatial theory; science and technology studies (STS); and social theory (in particular, practice-based approaches).

If you are interested in my work or share interests you would like to discuss, please feel free to get in contact.
