Ibukun is a final-year PhD Energy and Climate Change Policy Researcher at the University of Salford. Her research aims to explore how cities implement large scale district heating (DH) networks from a socio-technical perspective with a view to finding best practices and effective governing measures that can overcome the main barriers limiting the uptake and delivery of district heating at scale. Her PhD thesis seeks to provide evidence-based guidelines and policy levers on how to implement large scale DH networks which provide greater opportunities for decarbonisation, increased energy efficiency and cost-effectiveness in the heat sector through secondary case study research in Copenhagen, Stockholm and Helsinki as well as primary case study research in Greater Manchester (GM). Over the years, Ibukun's skills, experience and continued interests in the study of public policy has contributed significantly to her understanding of the literature on policy studies, how it pertains to various fields, and the key components integral to the success of policies. She currently works as a policy advisor on Home Retrofit and Energy Efficiency Standards in the Private Rented Sector at the Department for Business Energy and Industrial Strategy.

I am a psychologist graduated from the Universidad de La Frontera (Temuco, Chile) since 2016. Later, I obtained my master's degree in psychology in 2018 and I am currently studying a doctorate in Social Sciences at the same university. I have worked on several research projects in the area of ​​environmental and social psychology. Our research team mainly studies the relationship between air quality or PM2.5 and people's perception of air pollution, their attitudes, level of consciousness, information and many others. We also analyze the effects of wood heating systems on air quality, since it is the main heating system in southern Chile (Temuco). Our goal is to produce valuable information to improve public policies on air quality and the environmental conditions of many vulnerable cities that shape southern Chile, Latin América and the world.
