Dr Conor Walsh

Upon completion of his BSc in Environmental Science from the University of Limerick, Conor undertook an MSc in Sustainable Development. His doctoral studies focused on methodological adaptation of a land based sustainability indicator, with specific relevance to Ireland. This included development of a method to incorporate methane into ecological footprinting, as well a tool for comparing the emissions of commuting (including cycling). The later of which was referenced in the Irish Times.
