Personal profile

Research Focus

PhD Candidate in Geography.  The main focus of my research is municipally collected plastics recycling in Northern Ireland.  I am approaching this utilising stakeholder engagement and social sciences-based data collection methodologies.  I am using the Multi Level Perspective framework to try to understand barriers and enablers to better practice, and how the current regime matches up with overarching stated policy aims like the Circular Economy Action Plan or UK Environment Act.
