PhD Researcher in Human Geography, Newcastle University

My research interests centre broadly around ecological modes of social and political organisation, across scales of the everyday, collective action, and wider democratic structures. Specific areas of interest include: degrowth; ecological activism/movements; radical geographies; environmental and ecological justice; social ecology.

My PhD research explores contemporary environmental activism amongst young people. I investigate how young activists conceive of their own agency in relation to wider processes of socio-ecological crisis and transformation, and the different scales of action they negotiate in order to enact their green values and pursue societal change. I employ an analytical lens which draws on the concept of degrowth, as an emerging discourse of socio-ecological transformation and frame for grassroots action.
