Lecturer in Human Geography, Royal Holloway
My research focuses on searching for communities flourishing in the face of political and economic pressures, social unrest and cultural division.
My specific research interests cut across a number of traditional academic themes such as urban politics, creativity, cultural studies and social theory. I have published work on the creative practices of cities (both those that contribute to capitalist accumulation and those that try to resist it), the theory of networks, the representation of cities in film and labour in the creative economy. Currently, I am engaged in work on urban politics, creativity and social justice.
