I’m a Reader in Human Geography in the Department of Geography and Planning within the School of Environmental Sciences at the University of Liverpool. Before this I was Reader in Migration and Material Culture in the History group at De Montfort University, Leicester.

My research interests lie in the intersections between migration, mobilities, place, material culture and memory. These interests have led to different projects on aspects of Polish migration to the UK and the transnational practices of Polish migrants, the life histories and memories of different migrants, as well as research on ‘churn’, conviviality and neighbourliness within the UK city of Leicester. You can read more about my research here.

I’m on the editorial board of the journals Mobilitiesthe Journal of Cultural Geography, and CEEMR (Central and Eastern European Migration Review).

My University of Liverpool web pages contain more information about my research and teaching, as well as my contact information.
