I am Professor of International Political Economy at the University of York, where I worked since 2012. I taught at the University of Sheffield between 2002 and 2012. I have also held visiting appointments at the University of the West Indies, Australian National University, the University of the South Pacific, Fiji and the University of KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa.
I am currently co-investigator on the BBSRC 'IKnowFood: Integrating Knowledge for Food Systems Resilience' project funded by the Global Food Security-Food System Resilience programme, with contributions from BBSRC, ESRC, NERC, and the Scottish Government. Working alongside Professor Bob Doherty and Dr Chris West, Tony's role in this project is to investigate the ways in which different forms of governance, regulation and decision-making - both public and private and operating at different spatial levels - influence the UK's food system and the promotion of security, resilience and sustainability.
