Clair is a senior research fellow conducting interdisciplinary research with the Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research since its beginning in 2000. With over 30 years’ experience in Integrated Assessment approaches, her research has integrated technical and social science analyses, featuring the use of long-term scenarios and public and stakeholder participation in the context of energy and climate change. Her primary focus is on the assessment of carbon dioxide capture and storage (CCS), including the use of biomass energy with CCS (BECCS). Clair has extensive experience in energy-related social scientific research, including media analysis, public attitudes and responses, and ethical assessment, as well as more integrated socio-technical assessments. She has published widely on CCS and, more recently BECCs, having co-edited the first book to be published on BECCS, as well as on other subjects relating to energy and climate change.
