Professor of Sustainability, Faculty of Business and Law, Manchester Metropolitan University, UK
I am Professor of Sustainability at Manchester Metropolitan University. My research explores the role of innovation in systems of sustainable consumption and production. Much of my past work has looked at eco-innovation in the food and built environment sectors. More recently I've explored the factors facilitating and hindering the circular economy, and the sustainability implications of innovations stimulated by crises. I am a Senior Honorary Research Fellow at the Manchester Institute of Innovation Research, The University of Manchester, and elected member of the Steering Committee of Future Earth's Knowledge Action Network on Systems of Sustainable Consumption and Production (KANSSCP). I co-chair Future Earth's KANSSCP Working Group on the Circular Economy. I am a member of the editorial board of Springer’s ‘Circular Economy and Sustainability’ journal.
