I am a Professor in Environmental Geography at the University of Sheffield specialising in environmental geographies. My research focuses on how we understand, value and (ab)use the environment and the geographies of environmentalism. I am particularly interested in inspiring grassroots solutions to environmental problems and in hopeful and positive ways in which we can change social practices. This work includes a concern for justice; recognising that the broader context of environmental problems is often inequality, colonialism, racism and neo-liberalism. As a geographer I am interested in how these different issues connect, relate and entangle at different scales and in diverse places.
