Postdoctoral fellow, Keele University
Dr Maddy Thompson, formerly of Newcastle University, joined Keele Geography in July 2020 on a prestigious Leverhulme Early Career Fellowship to work on the Responsibility and Resilience research cluster.

Beyond academia, Maddy has experience working in the call centre and care sectors.
