SPECIAL AWARDS, HONOURS AND DISTINCTIONS

In 2011 I was offered a professorship to be taken up at Fudan University, Shanghai, P.R. China. This is a prestigious appointment at a world top-200 university which came with a 5-year research grant and the availability of a new PhD studentship each year. This appointment is in recognition of potential to develop internationalisation of researchers at Fudan in the general area of sustainability, and followed a selection process by advisors internationally (including in the UK).

 

In September 2016 I was awarded the Shanghai City Magnolia Award (Silver) for services to internationalisation in the metropolis.

 

In January 2018 I was invited to become a Fellow of the Royal Society of the Arts.

 

OVERVIEW

RESEARCH VISION AND EXPERTISE

The aim of my research is to use interdisciplinary research to make clear advances in modern challenges facing humankind. Although trained as a physicist, I now use design approaches to help move across and between disciplinary boundaries, especially waste management, behaviour scence implementation and sociology, treating them as integrated systems. I maintain the rigour needed for academic and pragmatic success by constant reference to unitary validity – especially requiring care with validity of representing the perspectives of the people involved (face validity), and validity of any measurements taken.

At the moment this have led to two main research foci:

1.    Changing food waste diversion behaviour of residents in cooperation with Shanghai Municipality (population 24 million) through grounded theory building. Our recent recommendations were formally taken into the July 1st 2019 policy, which triggered 9,000 tonnes new daily diversion.

2.    Crystallising and communicating local shared values of communities, e.g. in Senegal, Indonesia and India as a linking strand of work with health specialists on a UKRI GCRF Hub on Stunting; in Botswana for climate change adaptation planning; in Nigeria for village development; in Bhutan and Thailand for evaluation of values-based legacies of programs.

 

KNOWLEDGE EXCHANGE

I regularly work via contracts with government agencies, businesses, quangos, social organsitaions and other universities on work relating to those mentioned in Research Interests. I have delivered on over 80 contracts in these areas.

 

SUPERVISORY INTERESTS

I am a professor at both Fudan University, China and University of Brighton UK. I am currently seeking a high-quality PhD student for a fully funded studentship at the University of Brighton linked to a Global Challenge Research Fund project.  The second supervisor Dr Rachel Masika is based at the University of Brighton, see here for details:

https://www.brighton.ac.uk/research-and-enterprise/postgraduate-research-degrees/funding-opportunities-and-studentships/2019-uob-wevalue-insitu.aspx

I also welcome PhD students for full scholarships and stipends at Fudan University in China (email me before November each year; deadline in February for following September start) in any of the topics under Research Interests. Those sensitive to hard work and reading around completely new disciplines to make progress, need not apply.

I welcome postdocs to join me for 2 years at Fudan university in Shanghai, to have links with Brighton. Residency there is not always required: accommodation and basic salary sufficient for Shanghai is provided. Registration any time of year.

 

APPROACH TO TEACHING

I teach on the basis that students are actively interested in learning, and will firm up the content and assessment methods around the needs of individual students to the greatest extent possible. This means I like to know your background, and where you think you are going to: I will then try to support you on that pathway within my segment of your education.

I believe in travelling across disciplinary boundaries wherever needed, respecting the need for further reading and understanding every time - and like students to do the same. I like to challenge students to think more critically, but try to do this at an appropriate level for them.

I believe that quality learning can also come from non-formal sources of information and disruption.

 

PROJECTS

I have delivered as PI on more than 80 projects, with budgets totalling over £2,500,000 for knowledge exchange or intervention, including recycling behaviour change of residents in Shanghai, and working with consortia of automotive companies on diversion of plastic wastes for the EU End of Life Vehicles Directive, through the identification of synergies and ecologies between stakeholders.
