I am currently employed as a Senior Lecturer in Transport Geography and Planning. Prior to being offered a lectureship at Sheffield Hallam in 1999 had previously worked for local government in the areas of transportation planning, urban regeneration and community development.
I have a broad interest in many diverse approaches within Human and Urban Geography and related social sciences. My particular specialism is in the politics of transport and sustainable transport initiatives.
My main interests are in communications geographies and how this relates to urban politics. My current research is on the role of political communications strategies in transport policy making. I am also interested the developing area of Critical Mobilities.
My previous research interests have focused on environmental and social benefits of UK home zones, Sheffield City Council.
I have published research in the journal of Urban Design and recent submissions have been made to Urban Studies and Mobilities.
