I am a critical human geographer interested in urban inequality. My doctoral thesis looks at processes of educational exclusion, marginalisation, and resistance in post-WWII London. In particular, I am interested in the cultures and practices of grassroots non-formal education spaces set up for Black children, adults, and young people. This focus on urban inequality is reflected in my broader research interests incorporating postcolonial geographies; geographies of race and racism; non-formal education; cultural geography; and urban studies.
Rooted in Hackney Wick, East London but hailing from Newcastle-upon-Tyne in the North East of England, I am completing my doctorate at the Department of Geography, King’s College London. In 2014 I completed my undergraduate degree in Geography at King’s College London and in 2015 I graduated with a postgraduate degree in Urban Studies from University College London.
Alongside research and teaching, I provide support to academic investigators and other commercial clients as a digital image practitioner, producing film and photography media for display online and at large-scale public events. I have produced a broad range of outputs including portraits, academic documentaries, and event photography. I have also exhibited my work at the V&A and the British Academy in London.
