Lucie Middlemiss (Apr 19, 2021)
Energy poverty in the energy transition: understanding and addressing the under consumption of energy during a low-carbon transi @School of Earth and Environment, University of Leeds, UK
I joined the School of Earth and Environment in 2004 as a Teaching and Research Fellow, and completed my PhD in the School in 2009. I became a Lecturer in Sustainability in 2009, and an Associate Professor in Sustainability in 2017. Since September 2017 I am Co-director of the Sustainability Research Institute. Before I joined the school I did an MSc in Environmental Management at the Vrije Universiteit in Amsterdam. I am interested in social dimensions of environmental problems, including: sustainable consumption, community action on sustainability, energy poverty, the politics of inclusion in sustainability, and engagement in activism and decision-making. Conceptually, I am fascinated by social relations (people’s relationships with each other): in a supposedly individualized world, we actually operate within strong social networks, and the role that these play in shaping consumption is my central research focus.
