Bio: Professor Janelle Knox-Hayes Janelle Knox-Hayes is an assistant professor in the school of Public Policy at the Georgia Institute of Technology and a research associate at the Oxford University Department of Geography and Environment. Dr. Knox-Hayes joined the School of Public Policy after completing her PhD in Economic Geography at the University of Oxford. Her dissertation research was funded by the National Science Foundation and investigated the development of carbon emissions markets looking through the lens of regulatory and financial service institutions, with the use of surveys, interviews, and close-dialogue. She is interested in the political and economic dynamics underpinning energy transition and sustainable development. Her current research is funded by the Social Science Research Council and focuses on the institutional development of carbon emissions markets in Asia, with particular emphasis on the economic and policy drivers that develop these markets as well as their impact on social and economic systems.
Bio: Kathryn B. Janda is an interdisciplinary, problem-based scholar and senior researcher at the Environmental Change Institute at the University of Oxford. Her research focuses on how organizations and professions (re)design, use, own, and manage non-domestic buildings. Her approach builds on literature in technological innovation, organizational decision-making, and energy policy. Her work has been supported by the UK Engineering and Physical Science Research Council, the UK Economic and Social Research Council, Electricité de France, the US Environmental Protection Agency, the UN Department of Economic and Social Affairs, and the World Bank. She currently serves as an advisor to the UK Department of Energy and Climate Change. She earned undergraduate degrees in electrical engineering and English literature from Brown University (USA) and her M.S. and Ph.D. from the Energy and Resources Group at the University of California, Berkeley. She has worked in the Energy Analysis Program at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (USA) and served as an American Association for the Advancement of Science Environmental Policy Fellow at U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. Prior to her position at Oxford, she served as an assistant professor of Environmental Studies at Oberlin College (Ohio, USA), where she taught courses on energy production and consumption; interdisciplinary building analysis; environment and society; a practicum on ecological design; and qualitative research methods.
