I am a Professorial Fellow in the Faculty of Social Sciences at the University of Sheffield. I describe myself as an interdisciplinary urbanist, interested in processes of transformation and change, particularly around governance and policy processes; the roles of universities in their urban environments; and the research-practice relationship. I worked closely with Creative Concern to set up Platform, with support from Mistra Urban Futures, to foster the exchange of knowledge between different communities and stakeholders around sustainability in Greater Manchester.
