Dr. William Lamb

William Lamb is a post-doctoral researcher in the working group Applied Sustainability Science. He is interested in a human well-being framework for assessing climate change mitigation, with a focus on several areas of work:

  • Country development pathways
  • Human needs and energy consumption
  • Carbon emissions budgets
  • Political economy of climate change mitigation


William completed his PhD at the Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research, University of Manchester in 2016. He obtained a Master’s degree in Ecological Economics from the University of Edinburgh in 2011.
