Biography

Biography

The main aim of my teaching and research is to support the necessary societal transformation for sustainability. My research focusses on environmental governance, more specifically the manner in which the environment and environmental values are represented in policy and planning and how this influences governance outcomes. My empirical work spans the two thematic areas of sustainable rural development and urban nature.

I am the co-leader of the Sustainable Development Research Cluster and a member of the University’s Environmental Steering Group. I hold an honorary position in the Bartlett School of Planning at UCL and am a member of the Board of Trustees of the London Development Trust.

I lead the following modules:

-          SSC4604 global governance for sustainable development
