I graduated from Queen Elizabeth College, the University of London, with a degree in Physics and Astronomy in 1975. After abandoning studies for a DPhil in nuclear astrophysics at Oxford University, work and travels in South Asia, Australia, New Zealand, the Pacific and USA, and working in the UK for ActionAid, a Third World development agency, I obtained an MA degree in Rural Development from the University of East Anglia in 1984. I came to the Victoria University of Manchester in 1985 to study for a PhD in Agricultural Economics, and became a lecturer in 1988 and senior lecturer in 2002.
