She was awarded Distinction on completion in 2004 and in 2005 she joined CES as a research fellow working in the Sustainable Urban Environment (SUE) Waste Consortium. She then transferred to RESOLVE (the ESRC Research group on Lifestyles, Values and Environment) in 2006. During this time Angela was fortunate to work with Professor Tim Jackson, who was also the supervisor for her PhD, which she completed in 2008. In 2010 she was appointed Senior Lecturer in Sustainable Energy and Climate Change Mitigation, again within the Centre for Environmental Strategy, University of Surrey. Angela's research focuses on exploring the linkages between lifestyles, energy use and carbon emissions in order to inform policies aimed at moving towards a low carbon society.
