Research overview

I am an anthropologist/ sociologist. My work engages with a range of issues, stakeholders and communities related to the climate emergency and socio-cultural change. As Director of the Centre for Mobilities Research I am leading a five year focus on climate emergency mobilities. This includes developing a project related to lifecourse and climate change.

PhD supervision

I am especially interested in supervising projects at the intersection of lifecourse, (inter)generational or biographical research, mobilities and climate change. Theoretical interests: lifecourse, generational and family mobilities, material culture studies, theories of social practice, sociology of the future. Methodological interests: creative biographical, ethnographic, intergenerational methodologies; oral histories; mobile methods; design ethnography and making.
