A development practitioner turned academic by background; I have retired from full-time teaching but continue my research in an associate capacity as an honorary fellow at the University of York (read more here).

My main research areas are: 1) the political economy of international development (with a focus on technology and agrarian change, and the role of philanthrocapitalism); and 2) right-wing populism in rural Europe.

I am a member of the University of York Interdisciplinary Global Development Centre (IGDC); the Emancipatory Rural Politics Initiative (ERPI) Europe scholar-activist network; and on the Academic Advisory Group of the campaign group Another Europe is Possible.
