Projects per year
I re-joined the Department of Human Resource Management at Strathclyde after spending several years linking participative research and education methods towards community transformation, labour organisation and environmental management. My research has linked social and physical sciences through Geography and Sociology and currently explores migration and worker resistance in relation to corporate agroenergy monoculture, and investigates socially committed,integrated food and energy production along with engineering scientists and rural workers in Brazil and Scotland.
I have taught on the Department's undergraduate course and the Masters in International Human Resource Management over the last two years. I have also taught extensively in community education settings and on the Sustainable Communities course with Queen's University Belfast
