I work in the field of historical political ecology with a particular interest in the politics of everyday struggles over environmental change. My research investigates the points of connection between environment, technology, politics and everyday life in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. I am a member of the Centre for Environmental Arts and Humanities and the Modern Politics and Policy Research Group. Many of my research papers are available through open access.
I teach modules on environmental history, anthropogenic climate change and global history at the Cornwall Campus. My approach to teaching is influenced by critical pedagogies and emphasizes thinking about ways in which history can be activated to think about contemporary issues such as climate change. I also curate an occasional blog that seeks to bring together my research and teaching interests.
