Lecturer in Political Geography, Royal Holloway University of London

Dr Anna Jackman is a Lecturer in Political Geography at Royal Holloway University. Her current research revolves around the future drone city. The project examines how drones are both beginning, and anticipated, to shape urban landscapes and city lives in the UK. Working with a range of drone communities – from emergency services and drone delivery, architects and security providers, to critical infrastructure protection and regulators, this research is interested in examining how drones are propelled into, competing for, and anticipated to occupy and impact upon airspace in the UK’s future cities.
