I have degrees in engineering, environmental studies and geography, and I combine these perspectives into both teaching and research. My current areas of focus are to combine the fields of energy geography and sustainability transitions in order to investigate the actions of communities and the demand-side (households, firms, organizations) in mitigating climate change.


My current research is focused on understanding the emergence of clusters of low-carbon and renewable energy innovations and energy citizenship. You can learn more about my research on my website:


I will be teaching Geog 314 in Winter 2022.

My teaching approach is student centered with a focus on problem solving.
