Student Research Supervision

My work in the department includes the supervision of undergraduate dissertations and research projects under the Undergraduate Research Support Scheme (URSS). I also supervise research-based and practice-based postgraduate taught capstone projects, as well as PhDs.

Below is a summary of emerging themes from previous and current student research, alongside my own proposed themes on which I have specific interests in developing knowledge in partnership with students.

Emerging Theme / Indicative Proposal

Previous & Current Student Research

Powering or short-circuiting the Green Energy Transition?

Proposed framework: What is the role of various UK Green Energy companies in trade versus production, versus investment for more sustainable energy production and distribution?

None (so your name here perhaps?)

To What extent Is the Climate Emergency Driving Contemporary Food Price Increases?

Proposed framework: Analysis of FAO reports to built empirical understanding of the relationship between weather, the climate emergency and food production and stocks

None (so your name here perhaps?)

Education for Sustainable Development (ESD)

Proposed framework: To what extent can the UN SDGs support the structuring of Education for Sustainable Development in UK Higher Education
