Hi and thanks for dropping by my website!
I'm a social scientist interested in thinking about some of the relationships between mobilities, affect and bodies
My research develops post-structuralist social theories to carve out innovative understandings of contemporary mobilities. It examines how different forms of travel, from international air travel to urban commuting, are generating new forms of subjectivity, new political formations and new sensory configurations of contemporary life.

This website is designed to share some information about my research and teaching.
