She is researching the history of policyscapes affecting climate change mitigation in the UK and the effects of policy interactions on the uptake of solar PV in England and of offshore wind in the North Sea. Valeria has an interdisciplinary background across the social sciences and environmental studies (University of Pavia, University of Copenhagen, and Cambridge University). She is keen to study histories of (in)coherent worldviews and narratives in environmental planning, exploring the socio-ecological and political effects of various (in)coherences.
