Camilla joined the GSI in January 2023, from a career working in the fields of the circular economy, carbon emission reduction, and waste management. Most recently she worked as a Research Assistant at the Just Transitions Lab at the University of Aberdeen. The project investigated the views of civil society on the net-zero transition within Energy Cities.

Prior to this Camilla worked as a Business Analyst and Product Coordinator at an Environmental Technology company, where she helped develop technologies and products to reduce, reuse, and recycle waste-products from industrial processes.

Her PhD research involves working with Essex County Council to explore how a just transition to net-zero can be facilitated for micro and small-sized enterprises. Working closely with local government and local businesses, allows her to identify the challenges and develop potential solutions. Camilla is particularly interested in the governance and political processes of the transition and justice.
