Current Research Interests

I am a researcher in Sustainable Urban Governance. I am interested in how city and regional governments are coping with an increased responsibility to act on crises of sustainability despite having limited legal, institutional, political and economic capacity to do so. I have undertaken ethnographic fieldwork in the UK, Zambia, China and the United States of America.
