I’m a social scientist, mostly using qualitative and theoretical approaches to gaining new insights into the dynamics between business, society and nature. I’ve worked extensively on climate change, food systems, circular economy and other domains.
I’m interested in the governance and tensions of emerging green economy approaches. I’m particularly focused on what can be called ‘environmental governance from below’, researching grassroots innovations and other bottom-up approaches to addressing the ‘grand challenges’ of our time. I also have an interest in the psychological (often unconscious) dimensions of how people try to change the world.
I’m always open to collaborations, PhD projects, consultancy, media work and all other forms of engagement that link to my areas of research.
I have published 30 articles in The Conversation:
