Welcome to my website, where you can learn about my academic work, join my research team, invite me/us to conduct seminars/workshops and/or gain open-access to related pedagogical resources. My work is driven by my concerns about numerous personal, social & environment harms that often are linked to fields of science & technology (and engineering & mathematics, etc.); but, as George Monbiot describes at right/below, are more likely due to pro-capitalist actor-networks (dispositifs). To overcome such harms, therefore, we need to promote increased civic engagement prioritizing ecojustice. Accordingly, my research & publication programme since 2006 has prioritized such goals through the ‘STEPWISE‘ project – which uses action research to learn more about promotion of civic actions through science & technology education.
