Development academic and practitioner. Honorary fellow in the School for Business and Society and the Interdisciplinary Global Development Centre at the University of York.

I am interested in power-knowledge relations shaping global development institutions, policies and practice, with a particular focus on agriculture, technology and rural development, and the role of elite philanthropy. I also write about authoritarian populism and rural politics.

My recent work has been published in Economy and Society, The Journal of Peasant Studies, Sociologia Ruralis, New Political Economy, Third World Quarterly and Business and Society.

I am on the Council of Global Justice Now and Academic Advisory Group of Another Europe is Possible
