Research Supervision Interests
I am interested in supervising research students in the following areas:
Theory and Method
I have a PhD in Sociology. My research expertise is in sustainability and the related areas of social movements and capacity building. Questions that inspire my research are:
- How can catalytic interventions, such as mega-events, impact local communities?
- Why do certain types of interactions among neighbourhood organizations, non-profits, and government bodies, promote sustainable communities and others fail?
- What curricula and pedagogy foster learning about and contributing to social movements?
I employ diverse strategies and tools to study each of these areas, such as indicator-based measurements, multi-stakeholder engagement, cultural models, cross-case analysis, and simulation technology.
My research and educational interests are multi-dimensional, fully participatory, and sensitive to local problems.
