My scholarship decolonizes development in theory and practice. First, it decolonizes and reconstructs theory by critically examining sustainability and social justice in action. Engaging multi-paradigmatic frameworks for analysis, I unpack the structural, cognitive, and relational dynamics shaping alternatives to development and change. Second, my work informs development ethics and methods through critical reflections and reviews of practice. My scholarly praxis identifies and enacts standards and methods that support connection across difference, opening pathways for interdisciplinary and intercultural exchange.
