She has sat on a number of advisory boards and strategy panels for UK Government Departments, the Climate Change Committee, US Dept. of Energy, HoL Science and Tech Committee, RCUK and NGOs, including currently acting as Chair to the Research and Evidence Group for the Scottish National Transport Strategy Review
