Laura is a Research Fellow based in the Low Carbon Building Group of the Oxford Institute for Sustainable Development (OISD) at Oxford Brookes University. She is currently working on the EVALOC project, funded by ESRC/RCUK. The project seeks to understand the impacts of low carbon communities on localised energy behaviours. The project is based around six case studies across the UK within which she is undertaking a number of research activities such as household energy surveys; including whole house monitoring of internal environmental conditions and energy use and interviews with the households; and community carbon mapping.
