Personal profile

Research interests

My experience of research, doctoral supervision and publication span the following:

  • Agrarian change and rural development
  • Development finance and impact evaluation
  • Wellbeing and poverty assessment
  • The political economy of international development.

I am particularly interested in the interaction between them.

Recent research income has come from the UK Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) and Department for International Development (DFID). They have entailed field work in Ethiopia, India, Malawi and Peru. I have undertaken a wide range of teaching and management roles, and am currently Director of Studies for the Professional Doctorate in Policy Research and Practice, Head of the International Development Group, an advisor to Gorta Self Help Africa, and a trustee of INTRAC.
