University of Sussex
Role at Tyndall
One of three coordinators of Tyndall’s “Development” research theme. This builds in particular on David’s work on low carbon technology transfer to developing countries which has informed the United Nations climate change negotiations, as well as the OECD Environment Directorate and the governments of the UK (Department for Energy and Climate Change and Department for International Development), India and Chile.
David’s research and teaching focuses on transitions to a low carbon economy from both top down and bottom up policy perspectives. This includes research on low carbon technology transfer to developing countries, work oriented towards understanding how to engage the public in low carbon behaviour change, and research on the limits to decoupling energy use from economic growth.
