Mark is based at the University of Bath and his research is situated within Theme 3 – trialling. He is working with Cornwall Council to co-develop a residential engagement programme to encourage low carbon behaviours. Specifically, he is exploring Cornwall residents’ readiness to adopt low carbon behaviours across the four consumption domains. He will then apply CAST insights to co-design a travel intervention to reduce emissions and evaluate the behavioural and co-benefit outcomes.
Prior to joining CAST, Mark completed his PhD at the Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research, University of East Anglia. His thesis explored the adoption, use, and climate implications of online food hubs. He uses mixed method approaches, combining empirical data with Life Cycle Analyses to quantify the emission reduction potential of behaviour changes at the household level. Mark has participated in community food initiatives in Denmark and Sweden, where he taught an undergraduate course applying permaculture design techniques to develop sustainable urban food systems.
