Harriet Thomson - Founder

 

Harriet is the founder of the EU Fuel Poverty Network, and is a Postdoctoral Research Associate working on the EVALUATE project, within the Collaboratory for Urban Resilience and Energy at the University of Manchester. She is also Associate Editor of Energy Research & Social Science.

Through her doctoral research, which she undertook at the University of York, Harriet conducted a detailed multi-methods investigation into fuel poverty in the European Union. This involved qualitative analysis of policy documents spanning 2001 to 2014, and quantitative analysis of a new household-level index based on EU-SILC data. Harriet is co-author on several energy related publications, including an article that quantifies the prevalence of fuel poverty across the EU and a historical analysis of the EU’s discourse on energy poverty.

Raúl Castaño De la Rosa - Deputy Network Coordinator

 Raúl Castaño De la Rosa

My name is Raúl Castaño De la Rosa and I am from Spain. I am doing my PhD in the University of Seville (Higher Technical School of Architecture). The developed line of research in the PhD programme is about environmental conditioning, energy efficiency and ICT in building. My research is based on the analysis of existing indicators of fuel poverty and its relationship to the residential sector. 

Rhionna Mackay - Deputy Network Coordinator

 Rhionna Mackay

I am currently the Project Officer for a British Gas Energy Trust funded project called Cosy Homes East Sutherland Scheme (CHESS). CHESS aims to improve the health of householders and reduce the levels of fuel poverty in the project area through providing grants towards energy efficiency measures, such as central heating, floor insulation, double glazing and draught proofing, which will make the homes more efficient, healthier and less expensive to heat. CHESS covers the area of East Sutherland in the Highlands of Scotland. Sutherland is a county which has 73.5 – 86.3% of residents as being classed as in fuel poverty (Changeworks, 2015) and is an area which has the highest number of ‘cold homes’ in Scotland, with an Energy Performance Certificate rating of D – G (Changeworks, 2016). 

Irene Morris - Deputy Network Coordinator

 Irene Morris

I am an early career researcher in the process of completing my PhD through Maynooth University, Ireland. My thesis investigates the spatialized impact of energy policy measures on the energy efficiency of the built environment. I predominantly use open data and GIS to investigate the links between residential energy efficiency and other social and economic factors. Some early results from my research project indicate that current Irish policy measures are serving to both alleviate some aspects of fuel poverty while also potentially creating new instances of fuel poverty within the population. 

 

Asociación de Ciencias Ambientales

The Asociación de Ciencias Ambientales/Environmental Sciences Association (ACA) is a non-for-profit organisation founded in 1997 by students of the University of Alcalá (Madrid, Spain). Its membership includes students, researchers and practitioners concerned with and engaged in the analysis and resolution of environmental problems under different approaches and with an interdisciplinary vocation.

As a social and environmental organisation, ACA aims at:

• being a meeting point for researchers and practitioners with an interest in the broad field of environmental sciences for the promotion of research, the exchange of knowledge and perspectives, the establishment of interdisciplinary teams, the encouragement of relevant debates, the development of joint initiatives, etc.; 

• acting as a catalyst for shared initiatives and projects among potential partners from different sectors in order to promote the information, education, dialogue, consultation and social participation in attitudes and activities that seek to achieve more sustainable lifestyles and models of coexistence.

ACA has played an active role in raising the awareness and the understanding of fuel/energy poverty issues since the year 2011 and has produced the first comprehensive assessment of fuel poverty in Spain in 2012. An updated assessment of the effects of the post-2008 financial and economic crisis on domestic energy deprivation in Spain is expected for March 2014.

Ana Raquel Nunes

Raquel Nunes

Ana Raquel Nunes has over 16 years’ experience working across the field of public health, having held positions in universities, hospitals and in the World Health Organization (WHO). She began her career as a Biomedical Scientist working on Endocrinology and Microbiology with the Portuguese National Health Service. She since became a Lecturer in Public Health and Epidemiology at the Catholic University of Portugal, whilst also investigating the health impacts of heat waves as a Researcher in the Portuguese National Health Institute’s Epidemiology Department. More recently she worked as a Consultant for Living Environments at the WHO, where she was responsible for supporting the implementation, analysis and evaluation of the Portuguese Local Housing and Health Action Plan (LHHAP) project

Raquel was awarded a PhD in Environmental Science by the School of Environmental Sciences at the University of East Anglia (UEA), a master degree in Public Health (MPH), where she specialised in health promotion and health protection, and a MPhil in Climate Change and Sustainable Development Policies. She holds a dual degree in Biomedical Science and Public Health,

Working as part of the Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research, her interdisciplinary research investigated the risks of extreme temperatures to older people, the general and specified vulnerability, resilience and adaptation to both extreme heat and extreme cold temperatures and ways of reducing older people’s vulnerability, improving their resilience and adaptation. She pursed this research drawing upon health, social and environmental sciences. Her recent work has involved the use of mixed methods approaches to understand the role assets or resources play in shaping human vulnerability, resilience and adaptation to extreme temperatures. As a result, Raquel developed a new framework for the study of vulnerability, resilience and adaptation, and an innovative multimethodological approach combining quantitative and qualitative research methods has been designed and implemented, including surveys and interviews.

Raquel has been involved in peer-reviewed work for WIREs Climate Change and the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health (IJERPH). She was a member of the Netherlands’ Government Review team, reviewing the Human Health Chapter for the Fifth Assessment Report of Working Group II of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), organized by the PBL Netherlands Environmental Assessment Agency (2013).

Raquel was invited by the Science Policy Centre at the Royal Society to provide expert opinion on a range of biophysical interventions for improving resilience to heatwaves aiming at reducing the impact of hazards on people and communities on a project examining human resilience to extreme weather (2014).

Raquel joined the Warwick Medical School (WMS) in January 2015 and is currently a Research Fellow. Her primary role is to provide support and advice on research proposals for submission to peer-review funding for the Warwick hub of the NIHR Research Design Service West Midlands (NIHR RDS WM), as well as contributing to research within the Warwick Medical School through writing grant proposals for funding. Additionally, she also contributes to undergraduate and postgraduate teaching and supervision within the WMS (MB ChB, MPH).
