Land Economy
Energy, Innovation, Climate Policy, Multiphase Flow and MRI.
Prof Laura Diaz Anadon holds the chaired Professorship of Climate Change Policy at the University of Cambridge. At Cambridge she is also Director of the Centre for Environment, Energy and Natural Resource Governance (CEENRG) and Fellow at St. John's College, where she is the Director of Studies for Land Economy. She is also a long-standing Affiliate at the Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs at the Harvard Kennedy School (HKS) at Harvard University, where she is a Visiting Scholar for 2021–2022.

Prof Diaz Anadon joined the Department of Land Economy in September 2017 after a year as a faculty member in the Department in Politics and International Studies, also at the University of Cambridge. Before Cambridge she was an Assistant Professor of Public Policy at the Harvard Kennedy School between July 2013 and September 2016. At HKS she held various posts, including Associate Director of the Science, Technology and Public Policy (STPP) program, Director of the Investigator of the Energy Technology Innovation Policy research group and Member of the Board of the Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs.

Prof Diaz Anadon is a Lead Author in the 6th Assessment Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Working Group III on Climate Change Mitigation. She is a member of the Economics of Decarbonization Advisory Group for the UK Treasury’s Net Zero Review, the Carbon Trust's Breakthrough Ideas Steering Group and the Cambridgeshire & Peterborough Independent Commission on Climate and the Board of Directors of Cambridge Enterprise Ltd. In June 2018 she was awarded the XVII Fundacion Banco Sabadell Prize for Economic Research for the best young Spanish economics researcher, and in 2021 she was awarded a Distinguished Visiting Professorship at Tsinghua University. In March 2022 she was selected as one of the 15 founding members of the European Scientific Advisory Board on Climate.

In addition to these various formal policy and commercialization advisory roles, Prof Diaz Anadon has engaged with policymakers in the United States, China, South Korea, the United Kingdom, and Spain among others, and contributed to the UN Global Sustainable Development report and the Global Energy Assessment. She has also worked as a consultant for various organizations (i.e., Climate Strategies on a World Bank project, UNFCCC, and OECD), and has given numerous international invited seminars and plenary talks. Before moving into her academic career, Prof Diaz Anadon also carried out process engineering research projects at DuPont and Bayer Pharmaceuticals, collaborated extensively with Johnson Matthey Catalysts, and worked as a financial consultant at Oliver Wyman for banks on credit risk models for financing technology projects.

Prof Diaz Anadon holds a PhD in Chemical Engineering from the Magnetic Resonance and Catalysis Group at the University of Cambridge, a Masters in Public Policy from the Harvard Kennedy School, and a Masters in Chemical Engineering from the University of Manchester. During her undergraduate degree she also studied at the University of Stuttgart.

Leah Rose Downey
Dr Leah Downey
Human, Social and Political Sciences (HSPS)
Political theory is the study of how people ought to live together. Political economy considers how people produce what they need to live. These endeavours are, and always have been, fundamentally and inextricably linked. It is in the shadow of this observation that Dr Downey's research employs the tools of political theory to better understand the relationship between macroeconomic policy and democracy.

Her doctoral thesis explored what it would look like to democratise monetary policy. Recognising that the creation and allocation of money are among the state’s most distinctive powers, she argued that instituting an approach to monetary policymaking that respects the integrity of domestic democracy would have radical implications for both domestic and global economic governance.

As a Fellow at St John’s, Dr Downey will extend her research into the relationship between macroeconomic policy and democracy to explore how different notions of time employed by policymakers in modern democracies shape the power and possibilities of macroeconomic policymaking. This is an urgent task for two reasons: first, because it is essential to unlocking the state’s macroeconomic policymaking powers in the face of an existential climate crisis, and secondly, because doing so is critical for achieving the full realisation of a flourishing democratic state.

Ms Brigid Ehrmantraut
Anglo-Saxon, Norse and Celtic (ASNC)
The languages and literatures of medieval Britain and Ireland.
Ms Ehrmantraut is a philologist and intellectual historian specialising in the languages and literatures of medieval Britain and Ireland. My interests include Celtic studies, Latin literature, Classical reception and textual transmission, translation and landscape studies.

Her PhD thesis explored the reception of Classical mythology in medieval Ireland between the 10th and 12th centuries, and the ways in which Greek and Roman narratives became situated within a medieval Christian worldview. She examined a corpus of vernacular Irish adaptations of Classical Latin epic, as well as the influence of Classical mythology on medieval Irish authors’ conceptions of their own pre-Christian past. Ms Ehrmantraut has also worked on medieval perceptions of prehistoric monuments in Irish, Welsh and Latin literature.

During her Fellowship, Ms Ehrmantraut will continue her study of medieval Irish Classical reception into the 13th and 14th centuries, examining the development of the cath ‘battle’ genre of tales. These compositions drew heavily on Classical literature as well as on the earlier vernacular Irish adaptations of Classical epic produced during the 10th through 12th centuries, which she investigated in her PhD thesis.

Anna is a research fellow at St John's College and the McDonald Institute for Archaeological Research, University of Cambridge, and an associate investigator at the ARC Centre of Excellence for Australian Biodiversity and Heritage. Her PhD in Archaeology, recently completed at the University of Queensland, focused on the use of food plants and long-term human-environment interaction at the oldest known archaeological site in Australia, Madjedbebe, Mirarr Country, Northern Territory. Her current research focuses on the role of plant foods in early human migrations, and the complexity of long-term human-plant interactions within Indigenous communities in Australia, New Guinea and Island Southeast Asia.
