I am a 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 lead to, or prevent, societal transformations toward sustainability in different places. I engage with issues of sustainability, resilience and transformation of farming systems, alternative economies and grassroots innovations for sustainability, social change theories and sustainability.
