After graduating from the University of Exeter with a BA in English and German, Nicole completed an MSc in Global Governance and Ethics at UCL, with particular focus on energy and climate policy and quantitative research methods. Alongside her MSc, she worked as a publication editor for a climate change adaptation consultancy and undertook an internship in metadata enhancement for longitudinal studies. Her research applies experimental methods and uses behavioural economics as a framework for understanding barriers to uptake of local energy systems. More broadly, she is interested in research methodology, the public acceptance of changes in the energy sector, and the distributional impacts of the ‘energy transition’.
