Tradeoff and complementarity between energy use, transport and food choices under personal carbon trading (Priestley Doctoral Scholarships)

Supervisor(s)

Dr Zia Wadud, Professor Stephane Hess, Dr Phani Kumar Chintakayala and Dr Hannah Ensaff. Contact Dr Zia Wadud to discuss this project further informally.

Project description

The aim of the project is to understand the potential responses of households to such a policy and their potential pathways to reduce emissions. Special focus will be on the consumers’ tradeoff between reducing emissions from in-house energy use, transportation choices and food choices.

The project will have a strong quantitative modelling component. It will likely involve choice experiments and choice modelling, although traditional econometric/statistical/quantitative behavioural model or a combination of qualitative and quantitative methods (mixed methods) may also be a possibility.
