I am a Senior Lecturer in Political Geography. I joined Oxford Brookes University in the autumn of 2017, after having previously taught at University College London (UCL). Prior to this I completed a PhD in Political Geography at Durham University. My research interests lie in the areas of geopolitics, identity, nationalism, and statecraft, focusing on the Arctic region.

Prior to my PhD, I worked for the North Norway European Office in Brussels, Belgium. I continue to write regularly on Arctic issues for High North News, and engage with related policy.
