Urban Politics

The project LO-ACT (Low Carbon Action in Ordinary Cities) investigates climate-related innovations  within the daily lives of people living in rapidly urbanising areas. The project situates those innovations within changing political contexts and asks what constitutes a just climate response.

One of the objectives of the project is to reflect upon the possibilities embedded in climate action to deliver styles of politics that embrace the world's uncertainty.

The project is funded by the European Research Council from 2019 to 2024.

Societal transitions

The project CESET (Community Energy and the Sustainable Transition in Ethiopia, Malawi and Mozambique) analyses the role that community energy will play in creating sustainable energy futures. The project adopts a feminist, intersectional lens to understand how community energy is deployed and with what consequences for the people in those communities.

​The project is funded by the Global Challenges Research Fund from 2020 to 2024.

Other projects in which I have explored sustainability transitions: 

The project Urbanising in Place: Building the Food-Water-Energy Nexus from Below is a project from the Sustainable Urbanisation Global Initiative (SUGI) Food-Water-Energy Nexus, jointly established by the Belmont Forum and the Joint Programming Initiative Urban Europe. It focuses on the barriefs and opportunities for agroecological urbanism in four cities.

​The project Sustainable Energy Access in Mozambique- Socio-political Factorst in Conflict-Laden Urban Areas, was funded by the British Academy (2016-2018), via the Sustainable Development 2016 Programme. Its objective was to understand the political economy of energy in the country and how it impacted on people's lives.

 

​​​The project Mapping Urban Energy Landscapes, funded by the Economic and Social Research Council (2013-2016), sought to develop spatial understandings of human relationships with energy.
