I am a Reader in Human Geography, currently based at the University of Edinburgh. I moved to Edinburgh in 2013 after a decade working at the University of Canterbury in Aoteaora New Zealand. My work spans cultural geography, development studies and media studies. I’ve gained much of my geographic education in Nicaragua, working alongside inspirational Nicaraguans in their struggles for development, gender equality, sustainability, and autonomy. I am the author of Latin American Development (Routledge 2013), the co-editor of Mediated Geographies and Geographies of Media (Springer 2015) and the co-author of Communications/Media/Geographies (Routledge 2017) and Shifting Nicaraguan Mediascapes: Authoritarianism and the Struggle for Social Justice (Springer, 2018).
