Dr John Turnpenny is a Senior Lecturer in the School of Politics at the University of East Anglia. John’s research focuses, broadly, on the relationship between evidence and public policy-making, and more specifically on policy analysis tools, construction and deployment of scientific evidence. John takes a multi-disciplinary approach to studying the politics of policy-making, and is particularly interested in environment, sustainable development and climate change-related policy. His research interests span the politics of valuing nature, policy appraisal, the use of analytical tools in policy, climate change and society, scenario creation and futures communication, and knowledge brokerage.
- Meghan AlexanderSenior Research Associate
Dr Meghan Alexander is a Senior Research Associate in climate change adaptation within the School of Politics at the University of East Anglia. Meghan's research interests span various themes related to governance, policy dynamics, societal resilience, well-being and social justice. Her current research as part of the Adapt Lock-in project, investigates the driving forces and self-reinforcing mechanisms through which policy ‘lock-ins’ are created and sustained in key problem domains, and the corresponding implications for mainstreaming climate change adaptation.
- Tim RaynerResearch Fellow
Dr Tim Rayner has been part of the Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research and based at the UEA since 2006, researching climate change governance, policy and politics, particularly from EU and UK perspectives. He has published on mitigation and adaptation-related policy areas, and emerging debates over climate engineering and the potential for greenhouse gas removal. In Adapt Lock-in, he is interested to explore the development of policies relating to water scarcity, forestry and health in particular. Alongside ADAPT Lock-in Tim is participating in the Jean Monnet Network ‘Governing the EU’s Climate and Energy Transition in Turbulent Times’ (GOVTRAN).
