Professor of Geography, Assistant Vice Chancellor Sustainability, University of Waikato

My overall research interests centre on the challenges and spatial complexities of inequality. Specifically, my work draws attention to the exclusionary ways in which various forms of marginalisation and discrimination – such as sexism, homophobia, transphobia, and racism – shape people’s places and spaces. I have a commitment to empirical research that is informed by current theoretical debates about society, space and tourism encounters. I have an international research focus on the embodied geographies of genders and sexualities.
