About me

I started my lectureship in Environmental Geography at the University of Stirling in June 2015, where I specialise in energy geographies.

Prior to moving to Stirling, I completed my PhD in Physical Geography at the University of Leicester, where I stayed on as a postdoctoral researcher working on a number of interdisciplinary research projects that spanned the social and natural sciences. My first role was as a researcher and teaching developer in the HEFCE-funded Spatial Literacy in Learning and Teaching CETL, investigating the pedagogies of mobile Geographical Information Science (GIS) and Virtual Reality with particular focus on human/environmental applications. Recognising the value of interdisciplinary approaches, I then diversified and engaged with more social sciences projects where I developed my qualitative research skills.

Some of the larger projects I’ve worked on are: ‘Adaptations to Rural Communities through Living with Climate Change’ (RCUK Rural Economy and Land Use Programme); ‘New Urbanisms, New Citizens: Children and Young People’s Everyday Life and Participation in Sustainable Communities’ (ESRC), Affective Digital Histories: Recreating De-Industrial Places, 1970s to the Present’ (AHRC) and ‘Rural Hybrid Energy Enterprise Systems’ (EPSRC Bridging the Urban Rural Divide programme).

I am also a Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society, the RGS-IBG Energy Geographies Research Group Communications Officer, and an advisor for the International Energy Justice Council.
