I am a cultural-political geographer whose research interrogates the production of knowledge in relation to settler colonialism, environmental imaginaries and political ecology. My recent work explores cultural activism, artistic and ecological practices in the Middle East, focusing on the museum and the botanical garden in Israel/Palestine as sites of cultural struggle (often through a decolonial lens). 

Currently I am a teaching fellow in Human Geography at Durham University. Prior to this, I was an ESRC Postdoctoral Fellow at Aberystwyth University.

I have a Master's degree in Globalisation and Development Studies (Maastricht University, the Netherlands) and a PhD in human geography (Aberystwyth University). My research has been funded by the UK Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC), the Royal Geographical Society with IBG (through the prestigious Frederick Soddy Postgraduate Award), the Wales Institute of Social and Economic Research and Data (WISERD) and the AberDoc PhD Scholarship

  • (i) Critical approaches to the study of nationalism and national identity, with particular focus on the role of museums and archives in the articulation of national identities.
  • (ii) Cultural and artistic approaches to geopolitics, the production of imaginative geographies through creative practices, including exhibitions and visual culture.
  • (iii) Postcolonial and decolonial critiques to geographical knowledge, colonialism and settler colonialism - with a focus on colonial constructions of nature and environmental politics in Palestine-Israel.
