I am a Chancellor’s Fellow in Energy at the University of Strathclyde, which is a research-facing Lectureship post.
My research is interdisciplinary and applied, and addresses socio-technical transitions - often relating to geological resources, energy, water or integrated systems. Ultimately my work aims to inform a sustainable transition to net zero carbon future.
In addition to growing and developing my field through research and knowledge exchange, I am the MRes Director for the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering MRes programmes and I also teach on sustianble development for several undergraduate and masters courses. I deliver CPD and consultancy on citizens juries, decarbonising energy, life cycle impact assessment and design, environmental and social impact assessment, ethnography, mixed methods, and facilitation.
I am engaged with Strathclyde's Energy strategic theme and Society and Policy strategic theme, and am a co-founder of Strathclyde's new Global Environmental Monitoring and Policy (GEMaP) Centre for Doctoral Training.

- The architecture and fluid flow properties of shallow fault systems and their implications for geoenergy engineering
- Roberts, Jen (Principal Investigator) Shipton, Zoe (Co-investigator) Johnson, Gareth (Co-investigator) McMahon, Christopher (Researcher)
- This PhD project seeks to further understanding of fluid flow in the shallow subsurface, and particularly around fault zones, with the aim to reduce risks of geological engineering such as CO2 or hydrogen storage and to inform environmental monitoring. The project involves partners at CSIRO and Geoscience Australia.

- This is an exciting opportunity to engage in international research to reduce risks of climate change on water resources. The studentship will be developing innovative decision-making techniques as well as identifying potential policy interventions to enhance actions to mitigate and adapt to climate change, or to reduce the impacts of climate change.
