I need funds for my candidate deposit and campaign materials.

I lived in New Zealand until he was 25, then came to the UK to work in the Meteorological Office.  I went on to gain a PhD in Applied Mathematics from Oxford Brookes and worked as Senior Lecturer in Telecommunication Engineering at the University of Hull.  Until my retirement in 2020, I was an active climate change researcher and worked on telehealth systems for people living with dementia.  I have authored several reports for the Committee on Climate Change that were presented to the UK parliament.  I am active in my community, being a member of the TimeBank, coordinating Hull Carbon Neutral 2030, a front-rider      in Beech Holme Tandem Club, and previously Branch Secretary for the UCU union.  I have been Secretary and Co-coordinator of the Hull & East Riding Green Party. 

Hull West and Haltemprice Priorities

The cost of living crisis effects everyone in the constituency. We all need warm houses, affordable food, and to get around.  A  range of Green initiatives will address these including: higher quality new-build homes and cheaper upgrading of existing homes, ensuring fresh and nutritious food is available in all areas, and improving public transport with £1 bus fares and reducing  congestion by encouraging active travel.

Flooding from the sea is a serious threat to the constituency. The recently raised sea-wall is only designed to be effective until 2040, and may be over-topped before then.  Residents and businesses in the constituency need clarity on the future flood risks and to be involved in the planning of sea defences.

The UK and this constituency have a historical duty to lead by example.  This means reducing our greenhouse gas emissions in line  with the UK's 2050 net-zero legal obligation an Hull's 2030 commitment.  We need to protect the biodiversity in our environment by controlling pesticide use and improving the water quality in the tributaries to the Humber.  We need to show moral leadership by condemning genocide and not aiding aggressors.

PS Because we are a political party, we're required to run electoral register checks for people making donations above £500, and if you donate over £1,500 during a year, we are required to let the Electoral Commission know, who will make this available on their website. All donations go to general Green Party funds.
