I welcome applications in any area of systems thinking, and am particularly looking for students wanting to develop new methodologies and methods for application to 'wicked' policy problems and community development.
Related areas in which I am interested in supervising include community operational research; problem structuring methods; dealing with power, conflict and marginalisation; and participatory practice.
I have supervised more than 30 PhD students to successful completion.
