Dr Catherine Bale Appointed as Joint UAF across Engineering and Environment

Dr Catherine Bale has been appointed as UAF jointly across ERI in the School of Chemical and Process Engineering, and the Sustainability Research Institute in the School of Earth and Environment through the Great Minds Scheme (http://250greatminds.leeds.ac.uk/). Dr Bale’s research will be focussed on sustainable urban energy systems, taking a whole systems perspective and applying complexity science approaches. In particular, Dr Bale is interested in understanding how cities can play a role in delivering national energy policy and developing decision-support tools so that local actors can fulfil their potential in terms of decentralised energy.
