PROFILE

I am Professor of Economic Geography and Sustainability Research in the Department of Geography, LMU Munich. I am an Affiliated LMU Professor with the Rachel Carson Center for Environment and Society, LMU-Munich, where I am also a member of the Board of Doctoral Studies. I am an Honorary Research Fellow at the School of Environment, The University of Auckland, and a member of the Editorial Board of The Journal of Historical Geography. In addition I am a member of the Research Alliance "For Change" of the Bavarian Ministry of Science, Culture and the Arts, and an affiliated member of LMU-Munich working groups "Globalisation and the Arts" and "Urban Ethics." Born in New Zealand I gained my PhD from the University of Toronto and worked at the University of Auckland before moving to the LMU-Munich.


RESEARCH PROFILE

ECONOMIC GEOGRAPHY AND SUSTAINABILITY


I am developing my economic geography research around the theme of Resources and Sustainability with special focus on forest, agriculture and fisheries industries, on disaster recovery, and on the performativity of urban economies. In this research, sustainable use of resources within bio-economies, the development of sustainable business enterprises and networks, the effectiveness of policies designed to promote innovation and transformation, and resilience in the face of shocks are primary concerns. I research the relationships between resources, governance, innovation, markets and environments with sustainability as a driving conccern. As solutions to chronic environmental problems are sought by some in the formation of new markets it is timely to research aspects of resources and their effects on environments, market formation, the implications of trade for environments, and the implications of the cultures of markets for environments. This broad research focus is being advanced through two broad thematic agendas:.
