Research interests
My research addresses the ways in which households are adapting to major social, cultural, economic and environmental change. It focuses, for example, on how households are responding to governmental objectives to encourage practices of sustainable living, environmental responsibility, and economic self-management. The concept of everyday life is central to the research, highlighting that the social and cultural dimensions of climate change adaptation are as significant as the development of scientific and technical solutions. This materialist/spatial/cultural approach has been a distinctive feature of my research on the environment, and continues to inform my current work on sustainable cities, suburbs, domestic water use and ‘green’ homes. This approach understands the home/household as a porous site of different kinds of flows (water, energy, food, technological, infrastructural, financial etc.) that unsettle divisions between nature/culture, public/private, and the human/non-human.
