Christina Demski is a senior lecturer in the School of Psychology at Cardiff University. Apart from her work her UKERC work on public engagement with energy systems she is also Associate Director of the Centre for Climate Change and Social Transformations, where she is responsible for Theme 1 of the research programme exploring desirable and feasible low-carbon futures and lifestyles.

Her research explores issues within risk perception and communication, specifically public engagement with complex socio-technical and environmental issues (e.g. climate change, energy transitions). She has a background in environmental psychology but her work is shaped by a strong interdisciplinary perspective and the utilisation of mixed-methods. Christina’s UKERC work covers public values for whole energy system transformations, including perceptions of costs associated with energy transitions, and the role responsibility and trust play in informing public acceptance. She is currently working on a project focused on public preferences for heat decarbonisation pathways.
