Paul Upham is an interdisciplinary environmental social scientist specializing in energy supply and demand. He works on the social processes involved in energy transitions, at individual, organisation and system levels, and is particularly interested in connecting these system levels to provide an integrated understanding. For this purpose, he draws on the literatures of social psychology (e.g. regarding place and public objection to energy infrastructure); socio-technical transitions theory and innovation studies; science and technology studies; and human geography. 

Previously, Paul has been Chair of Human Behaviour and Sustainable Development at Leuphana University; researcher at the Sussex Energy Group, Science Policy Research Unit, University of Sussex; Visiting Professor at the Copernicus Institute of Sustainable Development at the University of Utrecht; Visiting Professor at the Finnish Environment Institute (SYKE); University Senior Research Fellow in the Sustainability Research Institute at the University of Leeds; and Senior Research Fellow in Tyndall Centre Manchester and Manchester Business School.
