He is a development practitioner/researcher with an MRes in Development Practice from the School of International Development, University of East Anglia, UK.  His current PhD focus is a scholar-activist research project ‘Love and Alter-Globalisation: Towards a New Development Ethic’ which explores a political concept of love as an ethical resource for the alter-globalisation movement and international development, in pursuit of principled and non-violent revolutionary social change.  His work places a particular emphasis on love as a key concept in political theory/philosophy and its potential application in the revolutionary transformation (alter-globalisation) of contemporary global capitalism, and in developing a new theory of social order.
