Background and activities

Deputy Head of Department for research

My research addresses how people morally regulate and enact spaces and places through what they do - or not. I have used empirical material from e.g. the cultural heritage management sector, outdoor recreation, and agri-cultures in order to demonstrate the production and effects of different moral geographies.

Together with colleagues, and I am currently exploring notions of social cohesion within a framework of 'geographies of community'.  

I chair the PhD committee at the Department, including regularly convening and lecturing at a PhD course on theory and theorisation in geography. My graduate teaching is broadly focused on management and contested values and practices concerning the conceptualisations and uses of nature.
