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