I am a Reader in Politics and International Relations, at the University of Sheffield. I previously worked as a postdoctoral fellow at the Centre for Deliberative Democracy and Global Governance, at the Australian National University. Prior to this, I completed my PhD in International Relations at the University of Adelaide, South Australia.
I am currently an ESRC Future Research Leader (2013-2016). You can read about this research project under Current Research.
My research interests lie within the area of global environmental politics. Efforts to understand that messy and complex arena have led me to many sub-fields of the politics discipline, including political theory, International Relations, international political economy, and public administration.
On a personal note, I grew up amongst the rolling hills of South Gippsland, in South-East Australia but have now settled in the Northern English city of Sheffield.
