About me

I joined the Centre for Sustainable Planning and Environments (SPE) in 2014 having undertaken an MSc is Sustainable Development at UWE. I completed my PhD on community-land trusts in 2018. My research interests centre on grassroots and community-led approaches to tackling inequalities. My work to date has focused predominantly on housing provision, but I have also been involved in international projects on citizen involvement in climate change adaption. Additionally, I am interested in methodological questions around how we conduct, make sense of, and share research knowledge. I have been involved in a number of participatory and socially engaged projects and maintain a commitment to developing my skills in researching collaboratively with non-academic partners.   

Area of expertise

Community-led housing, grassroots activism, community control of assets, participatory planning, participatory research, action research
