Bríd Walsh is an Assistant Professor at LUC. She has worked in industry and academia and across several fields including: law, climate science, and geography. She received her BA in Geography and LLB in Law from the National University of Ireland, Galway. Following this, she received a Master in Geography from the University of California, Los Angeles in 2007. During her time at UCLA, she conducted research on the Room for the Rhine project in the Netherlands. She was awarded a PhD in Geography from the National University of Ireland, Galway. This work explored the social sustainability of wind energy in Ireland, drawing lessons from Denmark and the Netherlands. Her research interests focus on energy and society interactions (e.g. the formation of stakeholder perceptions towards infrastructure projects), energy policy, and community development. Recent projects have explored the formation of community attitudes towards proposed large scale infrastructure, the meaning of ‘community’ within community energy development projects.
