I work within the Sustainability Research Institue and Interdisciplinary Applied Ethics Centre. My rsearch focuses on developing normative approaches to energy systems. My doctoral thesis critiqued existing energy justice approaches and described the plausible uses and contributions of ethical, moral, and political theory in understanding and responding to energy related injustice – and just what “injustice” might be taken to mean in these circumstances. 

Talk to me about energy and environmental justice, participation and procedural justice, and the capabilities approach (or anything else you find interesting!)
