Angela undertakes applied research on climate change adaptation and urban sustainability in the built environment and has, amongst others, worked with Liverpool City Council. Manchester City Council, Rochdale Borough Council, and the Building Research Establishment. This work has looked at how to practically adapt buildings to cope with flooding and extreme temperatures, as well as how these aspects are goverened. She has, more recently, became interested in the interchange between various disciplines in addressing the climate change agenda by working with musicians and artists to understand the issues and also to communicate climate change.

Angela co-ordinates the MSA's action on climate change.
