Associate Researcher, School of Environmental Sciences, UEA. Research interests include: the experience and management of situated risk (including both natural and technological hazards); narrative approaches to risk; relations of knowledge and expertise; and interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary research. Recent projects focused on natural hazards include: ‘Harnessing Citizen Science to Reinforce Resilience to Environmental Disasters’ (GCRF) and ‘Strengthening Resilience in Volcanic Areas, STREVA’ (NERC/ESRC). Research projects on the nuclear sector and radioactive waste management have included: MoDeRn (EC FP7), on stakeholder involvement in the monitoring of geological repositories; InSOTEC (EC FP7), on socio-technical challenges to geological disposal; CARL (European RWMO consortium), on stakeholder involvement in the field of radioactive waste management; and ‘Living with Nuclear Risk’ (ESRC), on local experience of living with nuclear power.
