I am a geographer with an urban focus, a migration inclination and a political urge to make sense of our strange times.

I am the Principal Investigator in three current/recent major research grants: NutriCities (British Academy); Transcapes (ESRC/DFID) and Police Science (RCH). I am also Co-Investigator in PUrSI (ESRC Urban Transformations), Associate Editor at Political Geography and Senior Editor at CITY.

We are building an excellent cohort of critical urban and migration scholars here at Loughborough, so if you are interested in joining us and working with me (at either the Masters, PhD or post-doctoral level) please get in touch.

For regular updates on my research you can follow me on Twitter and check my blog, The Slow.

My teaching examines the political reformulations of urban space ―and the urban in particular― in our post-prosperous times.
