Energy Policy Researcher
Kathryn G. Logan attained her first class BSc (Hons) in environmental science at the University of Aberdeen, Scotland in 2016. During her undergraduate degree she spent a year studying abroad at the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse. Kathryn passed her PhD viva in September 2020 from the University of Aberdeen in environmental science with her thesis entitled ‘Investigating the impact of the electrification of transport to reduce carbon emissions on natural capital’. Kathryn’s research focused on infrastructure changes, including electricity supply, and the related effects and trade-offs between greenhouse gas emission reductions, climate regulation and the potential impact upon ecosystem services and natural capital. Her PhD was funded by the National Environmental Research Council (NERC) and consortium partners, and contributed towards the 'ADdressing the Valuation of Energy and Nature Together' (ADVENT) research project, as part of the UK Energy Research Centre (UKERC). During her PhD studies, Kathryn secured travel grants allowing her to work as a visiting researcher undertaking case study analyses at Tsinghua University, China and Kyoto University, Japan.
