Having originally graduated with a Masters in Physics from the university of Oxford, Mairi later completed a second masters in Environmental Technology after which she joined the Department of Energy and Climate Change as a Senior Policy Advisor, helping to develop The Green Deal, a UK policy initiative to allow homeowners to pay for energy efficient home improvement through savings made on their energy bills.
Mairi has now since returned to Oxford and now works for the City Council as the Sustainable Team Manager and had a lead role in an EU-funded partnership project that led to over £20m of investment into local energy projects in Oxfordshire: helping Oxfordshire’s Low Carbon Hub to grow and to support other community energy groups in and around the county.
In her spare time, Mairi enjoys tending to her allotment or cycling around the area – including some lovely routes that pass the Westmill site.
