Biographical details

Samuel Tang studied BSc Geography at the University of Exeter (UK) and was awarded a first class with honours. Following his first degree he continued his studies at the University of Exeter (UK) where he graduated with an MSc in Sustainable Development. In September 2011, Samuel joined the Department of Geography at King's College London after being awarded an ESRC studentship by the King's Interdisciplinary Social Science Doctoral Training Centre (KISS-DTC).

The project aims to significantly advance knowledge systems to enable society to adapt effectively to an uncertain climate. The programme is divided into two domains: a) Understanding climate information needs across society and; b) The social status of techno-scientific knowledge in adaptation to climate change.

Research interests

Samuel is exploring the domain of corporate environmental reporting with a particular focus on the practice of climate change reporting and its effects on organisational cultures and behaviors. The research will investigate and address the following objectives:

  1. Identify and describe the patterns of, processes of and approaches to climate change reporting in the UK business community.
  2. Explain reasons for observed variations in climate change reporting and organisational behavior.
  3. Consider the implications of reporting for organisational responses to climate change.
