I am a Lecturer in Environment and Development at the University of Reading, United Kingdom.
I am concerned with uncovering and understanding the conditions that lead to, or prevent, social-ecological transformations, and the dynamics of social-ecological change in different places. I engage with issues of sustainability, resilience and transformation of agricultural systems, alternative economies and grassroots innovations for sustainability, degrowth, and social change theories and sustainability.
