Professor of Society & Environment, University of Technology Sydney

In 2020 took up the Associate Dean (Research) role in the Faculty of Arts and Social Science at UTS, Sydney. I have previously worked at the University of Wollongong, Australia, and maintain my long affiliation with the University of Manchester, England.

My principal research interest is the political economy of environmental change. I have spent most of my career in departments of Geography. I'm currently writing a big book called What Future For The Earth? It will be published by Routledge in 2025.
