Sheffield Hallam University

Senior Research Fellow

Sheffield Hallam University

I am a researcher on place, space and public policy, working with the Centre for Regional Economic and Social Research at Sheffield Hallam University. My PhD examined sustainability transitions and institutional change, and I worked with the Department of Landscape Architecture at the University of Sheffield on green space and wellbeing.

Outside academia, I have been a journalist and consultant, specialising in UK community regeneration. I am the author of How to Save Our Town Centres (Policy Press, 2015) and co-editor of Urban Crisis, Urban Hope (Anthem, 2020) and Naturally Challenged (Springer Nature, 2020).
