Laurence joined SPRU as a research fellow in 2018. He currently splits his time between the NERC and ESRC funded project ‘Fracking’, Framing and Effective Participation (FFEfP) and a project on ‘The energy and climate impacts of 5G’ as part of the CREDS Digital Society theme.
More broadly, he is interested in sociotechnical controversies; the planning and regulatory oversight of shale development; public engagement with and participation on science, technology and innovation; and the intersection between science and technology studies (STS) and democratic theory.
