Research activities


My PhD thesis entitled “Governance, Decision Making and Publicness in Marine Space” draws heavily on my previous regulatory and EIA experience and has given me the opportunity to develop my understanding of stakeholder engagement within the offshore consenting process and in particular the policy drivers which apply to the offshore energy generation market. This has included extensive research into offshore consenting legislation, EIA and the marine licensing and Development Consent Order process. 

I am now working at Howell Marine Consulting, continuing to explore my research interests within Blue Economy, science-policy interface, and impact areas.
