Personal profile


My research is about neoliberalism, growth and the climate crises, as well as opposition and alternatives: degrowth, climate movements and green transition.

I have a particular interest in the philosophy and methods of social science. My research in this area is about critical realism as an alternative to positivism and postmodernism in the light of contemporary social and ecological problems.
