Personal profile

Biography

My research looks at how environmental technologies and markets for 'ecosystem services' are coming together to change human relationships with the non-human world. I also consider how these same technologies are deployed to enable more equitable post-capitalist futures.

I lead the MSc in International Development. Before joining Northumbria, I led the International Development programme at Nottingham Trent University. In 2016 I was a Post-doc Researcher at Colorado State University, looking at Palau’s National Marine Sanctuary. Before that, I was based at Victoria University of Wellington, Aotearoa, New Zealand. My PhD research explored the political ecology of climate finance in Indonesia.
