I have been working in, researching and teaching international development for more than 25 years.

I headed to Papua New Guinea in the early 1990s, initially as a VSO volunteer, and went on to work with various development NGOs in Papua New Guinea, Cambodia and Vietnam.

A year out to do an MA at the Institute of Social Studies in The Hague led, unexpectedly, to a PhD and late academic career, at the Sussex-based Institute of Development Studies and then University of York.

Contact Sally BrooksI am now an honorary fellow at the University of York (profile page here). I write about science & technology and international development, particularly in relation to smallholder agriculture; and the role of philanthropic foundations and ‘philanthrocapitalism’ in development.

You can find out more about my research on the publications page on this website, or look up my research profile on Google Scholar, and the York Research Database.
