Dr Sarah Mander

Research Fellow; Deputy Leader of the Tyndall Energy Programme

Sarah started her career as a Chemical Engineer, initially working as a project engineer in the chemical and pharmaceutical's industry. Upon leaving industry, she spent six years working in a variety of roles for an urban design and build company. For these six years her job included facilitating community engagement in regeneration projects, welding, workshop management and promoting sustainability within urban neighbourhoods. In 1999 she joined Manchester School of Management researching the penetration of wind energy in the North West for her PhD. Since completing her PhD, Sarah has worked at the Tyndall Centre. Her research interests are focused on climate change mitigation and she has researched renewable energy, long term energy scenarios, sustainable energy in the urban environment, recycling and climate change governance.
