I am currently working as a Research Fellow for Energy Efficient Scotland Programme: Evaluation of Pilots. The projects were funded by Scottish Government, as part of the Energy Efficient Scotland Transition Programme. My work includes the social evaluation of recent local authority-led energy efficiency pilot projects in Scotland. 

I have a background working in the energy sector, having worked as a data analyst and GIS technician at Scottish Power, and Project Manager of renewable energy developments at Temporis Wind. 

I have recently completed a PhD in Geography from University of Glasgow, where I investigated governance of low carbon and inclusive transitions in the city.

My academic background includes an MA (Hons) in Geography with Polish Language from University of Glasgow, and MSc in Ecological Economics from University of Edinburgh.
