I am a researcher, bookworm and writer based between India and Italy.

In 2013, I published a book on the financialisation of food, with the title Hungry Capital. My most recent project is a monograph on the cultural politics of Transition Town initiatives, looking at the modes whereby a growing array of personal and public experiences are given shape inside a differentiated and expanding mesh of social relations.

On this website you can find out more about my work, listen to interviews and read extracts and reviews from my books, and generally get a feel for what it is that inspires me. Occasionally, I also contribute to various blogs and magazines, discussing issues I am passionate about: you’ll find my blogs and features gathered in the News section.
