Lecturer in Political Geography, Newcastle University

I joined the School of Geography, Politics and Sociology as a Lecturer in Political Geography in January 2017, after completing my PhD at the University of British Columbia. I do a mix of political and legal geography but I'm especially interested in interdisciplinary work that engages critically with questions of war, security, international law and the Middle East.
