Dr. Laura Tozer BSc MA PhD

I am a Postdoctoral Research Associate at Durham University in the UK. With training in geography and environmental science, I am an interdisciplinary scholar seeking to examine the changing relationships between cities, energy, and infrastructure in order to address the climate crisis. My work develops new understandings of climate change and urban sustainability governance and politics. My research investigates (1) the planning and implementation of just, zero carbon and resilient transitions in cities, (2) the politics of transnational urban climate governance, and (3) pathways to mainstream sustainability solutions so that they become standard practice for urban development.
