I joined the School of Natural Sciences as lecturer in Human Geography in Sept 2019. My teaching covers a range of geographical themes including place and space, environmental geographies, field course modules and supervision of third and fourth year Honours Project students. I also contribute to the GIS & Research Methods (DXX 2000) module to help students learn about social research methods for quantitative data collection as well as research design, methods and analysis related to qualitative data. 

Prior to my role at Bangor I worked as a postdoctoral research at Swansea University. My work in Swansea was focused on investigating experiences of poverty within aquaculture communities in India and Bangladesh as part of the PAConDAA project. In 2018 I completed my PhD at Aberystwyth University, this research focused on the modified car culture in the UK, working with enthusiasts and exploring ideas of community, automobility and the geographies of enthusiasm.

My continuing research interests are focussed around two interelated areas. Firstly, the geographies of enthusiasm, enthusiast communities and knowledge exchange. Secondly, I am interested in the geographies of the car and automobility, particularly our socio-cultural relationship with cars within a context of potential driverless futures.
