Dr Carly McLachlan

My area of research covers how people and organisations engage with energy and climate change issues. This generally means that I am looking at the interactions between science, technology and people. One particular area of interest is in renewable energy siting issues. We have an explicit policy relevance focus at Tyndall Manchester and so we try to conduct research that has practical relevance to the climate change agenda for national and local government, businesses and NGOs.
