MPhil/CIM Dip/MBA PGCert/RSA Fellow
My research focuses on the relationship between industrial policy, place and inequalities and the quantification and interaction of social and economic theory and practice in the firm - labour relation.
Having worked for Groundwork UK, RIBA and The Bartlett, as well as a number of projects in the field, I enjoy programming, contributing to and bringing to life collaborative projects from policy and research knowledge transfer in urban and regional development, to public engagement, arts and community development, with a particular interest in narratives of place, absence and presence, identity, memory, histories and belonging.
My interests lie with alternative economics, inclusive growth, industrial policy, local economic development, economic sociology, economic geography, complex adaptive systems, networks, clusters, employment and skills, identity, value, social capital, social innovation, social economy, power and agency.
I furthermore hold undergraduate degrees in English Literature, Linguistics and Communication, an MPhil in Modern European History, a Postgraduate Certificate in Business Administration, a CIM CAM Marketing Communications Diploma, and 10 years experience in Marketing Communications (design, print, digital, PR, events).
