I’m a researcher at the Public Interest Research Centre and have been involved with the Common Cause initiative – a collaboration between a number of social change groups – for several years. I’m based in mid-Wales and my background is in Psychology and International Development (the latter of which left me pretty disillusioned with the development ‘industry’). I’ve co-authored a number of Common Cause reports – looking at how the role of values in entrenched political issues, environmental consciousness and social change. At the moment, I’m mostly working on understanding equality and intersectionality through the lens of values, and thinking about how to support a community of practice around values work.
