Research overview

I am a post-graduate research student in Global Sustainable Development, looking at whether and how nationalism can influence responses to climate change. I am particularly interested in how work and worker are defined by trade unions and other stakeholders in their engagement with the concept of a 'just transition' in the context of climate and ecological breakdown and rising populist nationalism.

My wider research interests are: trade unions, climate justice movements, low-carbon transition, capitalism and climate change.
