Areas of expertise
I am an experienced and imaginative researcher of late nineteenth-century histories of geography, anthropology and science, with expertise in the visual technologies of the magic lantern and photography, and the institutional history and epistemology of geography. My research is informed by inter-disciplinary methods employing archival, material objects and visual media. With a multi-cultural upbringing I bring language skills and additional European cultural dimensions to my work.
I hold an undergraduate degree in Archaeology and Anthropology (University of Cambridge) and an MSc in Environmental Science and Archaeology (Sorbonne, Paris). Through my AHRC-funded PhD with the University of Exeter and Royal Geographical Society (with IBG), and more recently my postdoctoral work with the same partnering organisations, I have specialised in late nineteenth-century and early twentieth-century historical geography. My studies are complimented by my professional expertise in modern and contemporary art. I have contributed to the third-year Geography module on The Geographical Imagination module. I am also Language Editorial Assistant for the journal Planning Perspectives.
