Denise’s current research aims to understand the possibilities and dilemmas that social finance methods offer to alternative business models. Her research explores how individuals, organisations, structures and financial resources are mobilised in physical and digital spaces; and what are the effects of these arrangements, especially in terms of social inclusion, equity and justice. Denise’s research and teaching experiences involve sustainability, alternative economies, and agri-food systems. She has also worked for several years with mainstream and alternative financial services, integrating social, environmental and economic approaches to organisational and industry contexts.
