Emmet is a PhD candidate in the School of Political Science and Sociology at National University of Ireland, Galway. His main interests include relational sociology and the sociology of climate change. He is just a few months away from his viva and his thesis investigates public climate change receptivity in Ireland. This involves a multi-method approach, examining how the object of climate change mediates through divergent social spaces, encouraging different appreciations and responses by those who occupy those spaces.
