Nathan Wood


I recently completed my PhD Energy, Capability, and Justice: a foundation for a normative account of energy systems as a joint project between the Sustainability Research Institute and IDEA centre at University of Leeds.

I was also recently a visiting scholar at the Rachel Carson Centre for Society and Environment in Munich, where I worked on ideas of pluralising approaches to planetary justice through recentring notions of procedural, recognition, and epistemic justice within research and practice.

I have a Masters in Environment focusing on CSR from the University of York.

My research focuses on understanding the normativity in grounded justice trajectories, particularly within energy and environmental justice discourses. I have a strong interest in procedural justice and decision-making within complex systems such as energy and infrastructural systems, as well as, the use of eudaemonic conceptions of well-being, such as the capabilities approach, in understanding how a person or groups interests intersect with these systems.

Please get in touch to discuss energy and environmental justice, procedural justice, the capabilities approach, or anything else.
