Personal profile


I am a human geographer to whom climate change and urban planning continue to be evocative to my research. As urbanization threw more people to urban areas, the development of greener cities becomes increasingly vital to tackle climate change. Methodologically I come from the social nature approach in contemplating human-environment interactions. This allows examining the urban and economic geographies of global environmental change. In this context, my work on responsible geographies and the geographies of response particularly examine the knowledge base upon which geographers, urban planners and architects shape the cities of tomorrow. Shaping low carbon and sustainable societies invites critical scrutiny, not least in the context of socio-technical change. This includes ESD and the ways in which one thinks critically about sustainable cities, sustainable entrepreneurship, and regional sustainable business initiatives.

My approach to teaching is informed by critical pedagogics. This means that I conceive learning as a process through which students enrich their individual ability to develop methods for knowledge production, rather than transferring knowledge to students themselves.
