Martha Bicket

Martha joined PSI in May 2012 and is a Senior Research Fellow in sustainability policy. Her current work includes the analysis of paradigms and public acceptability for the EU-funded FP7 project DYNAMIX, where she is exploring: how underlying societal paradigms and public acceptability affect resource-use policy effectiveness and feasibility; and the optimal design and sequencing of policies for absolute decoupling. Martha was recently involved in a scoping study for the EU Commission, where she drew upon a wide range of existing data and work, such as that of the Ellen MacArthur Foundation, to identify priority sectors, materials and value chains for the transition to a circular economy, as well as key actors, winners and losers. Martha has experience in a range of research methods including the design, implementation and analysis of large-scale surveys, data visualisation techniques and in quantitative analysis and modelling software. Her other experience and interests include evaluation and appraisal, with a particular focus on Cost-Benefit Analysis, Social Discount Rates and the appraisal of projects and policies with long-term consequences.

Prior to joining PSI, Martha worked at the European Commission in Climate Change and Natural Hazards, DG Research and Innovation. Martha has a BSc in Mathematics from the University of Warwick and an MSc in Environmental Technology from Imperial College London, where she specialised in Environmental Economics and Policy.
