Msc and DPhil, University of Oxford

I am a University Lecturer in Human Geography at the University of Cambridge. Prior to joining Cambridge in 2018, I was a British Academy Postdoctoral Fellow at the School of Geography and the Environment, University of Oxford. My research is focused on generating new understandings of the politics, spatialities and governance of the living and material world, engaging political ecology and posthumanist thought.  Of particular interest are nonhuman ecologies and processes pertaining to production, landscape and knowledge, and situations in which different ecological epistemologies are brought into conflict. My past and ongoing research projects include work on animals’ geographies, nonhuman labour and the economy, and most recently postcolonial urban ecologies. I have a DPhil in Geography from the University of Oxford.
