Dr Mehri Khosravi
I am an Environmental Social researcher with a background in Climate change and Environmental management. I have an MSc in Environmental Management, a PhD in Environmental planning, and a second PhD in Environmental Science from the University of Liverpool.
I am interested to investigate the relationship between society and environmental issues through engaging with various stakeholders. Currently work at the University of Exeter, the Energy Policy Group (EPG), as a policy researcher to work on an EPSRC Funded project. Before this, I was at the Sustainability Research Institute (SRI) of the University of Leeds as a Research Fellow, work on the climate service and adaptation projects. Before joining academia, I worked as an environmental consultant on projects such as regional planning and Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) in Iran.

Current project: Flex-Cool-Store (Funding: EPSRC)
This project is led by Dr Carlos Ugalde-Loo at Cardiff and consists of 5 work packages. As a research fellow, I work with Dr Richard Lowes (work package leader) on the work package which investigates the policy issues associated with the future of cooling in buildings and will investigate policy maker perceptions of this issue, developing this limited policy change literature.
Previous research projects
Project: Turning climate information into added value for traditional Mediterranean Grape, Olive and Durum wheat food systems (Funding: Horizon 2020):
This cross-disciplinary research project aims to make European agriculture more resilient to climate change by using climate services. I engaged with various stakeholders across Europe to conduct a climate service evaluation using social science approaches.
Project: Sector-Based Climate Services for Water Resources in China (Funding: Newton):
This research was a collaboration between the UK Met Office and the China Meteorological Administration, where I designed and conducted 30 semi-structured interviews with the Chinese water managers from various levels of decision-making.
