Personal profile

I am an inter-disciplinary social scientist situated in the field of Ecological Economics. I am specifically interested in conceptual tools and frameworks in non-monetary values and valuation methods. My primary focus is social values and their potential to facilitate sustainability transitions. My interest with social values specifically is due to their ability to operate at the intersections of democracy, economics and environmental ethics.

Working at these intersections means I am always looking to collaborate and draw upon thinking from a wide range of disciplines, from across the Environmental Humanities, Arts and Cultural Studies, Geography, Psychology and Anthropology to help develop such concepts and methods. I largely focus on qualitative methods, looking for ways to practice participatory and deliberative research.
