Dr Catherine Butler

Catherine Butler is an environmental social scientist with a background in inter-disciplinary collaborations. Her work examines processes of environmental governance focusing on two major substantive themes – energy and low carbon transitions, and flooding and climate change adaptation. Catherine developed these themes over a number of years through several projects and grants examining the roles of publics, the state, and private institutions in the societal processes which work to embed, sustain, and shift particular ways of living with implications for environmental sustainability.
