I am an interdisciplinary geographer with particular interests in cities and domestic space. I am currently working on a British Academy Innovation Fellowship relating to domestic energy use decarbonisation. I have a forthcoming book with Peninsula Press on domestic interiors called Living Rooms.

My PhD was an ethnographic study of urban change in Brixton. Currently I am exploring the ways in which paintings can be analysed as a form of urban knowledge. My urban studies research has focused on epistemology and representation of urban space as well as social inequality and urban regeneration.

British Academy Innovation Fellowship Route A:
