Development practitioner turned academic. I am an honorary fellow with the Department of Social Policy and Social Work and member of the Interdisciplinary Global Development Centre (IGDC) at the University of York. My research critically examines decision making in globalised networks formed around technocratic visions of development and agrarian change. The outsized influence of philanthropic foundations in global development has been a recurring theme. I also write about rural politics in the context of Brexit and right-wing populism in Europe more broadly. I am a member of the Academic Advisory Group of the campaign group Another Europe is Possible and on the Council of Global Justice Now.
