Personal profile

Academic Biography

I am a human geographer with specialisms across cultural and social geography. My current research has three main focuses: 1) the relationship between geography, art theory, and art practice, particularly interdisciplinary approaches to socio-environmental issues; 2) town planning and deathscapes; and 3) geographies of comfort. Central to my research ethos is interdisciplinary collaboration with colleagues and practitioners within the academy, as well as research and practice-based collaborations with urban, environmental and arts practitioners, such as curators, artists and policy makers. I have a MA and PhD in Cultural Geography from Royal Holloway, University London. Before joining Teesside University as Lecturer in Geography I held academic positions at Royal Holloway, Leeds Beckett University, Central Saint Martins, University of the Arts, and University of Reading.
