Mike is Senior Research Fellow in the Sustainable Consumption Institute. His research focuses on the shape of future sustainable cities and understanding this at the intersections between territorial transitions and transitions in urban infrastructures. Mike is currently working with colleagues from the Alliance Manchester Business School on a project analysing the implications of political devolution for urban transitions in housing and transport, and, from this, how processes of devolution can be enhanced. Mike was previously Senior Research Fellow at Salford University, where he spent a decade in the Centre for Sustainable Urban and Regional Futures (SURF) working in the area of urban and regional governance and transitions. He has published and presented widely on this research agenda.
