Research Associate, Improving Wellbeing through Urban Nature, University of Sheffield

I am a researcher on place, space and public policy. My PhD examined sustainability transitions and institutional change, and my current work is with the Department of Landscape Architecture at the University of Sheffield on green space and wellbeing. Outside academia, I have been a journalist and consultant, specialising in UK community regeneration. I am the author of How to Save Our Town Centres (Policy Press, 2015).
