I am an urban studies researcher currently conducting a 3 year postdoctoral project on the global markets and networks of evictions and eviction enforcement, and their impact on the right to housing.
I received my PhD from the School of Architecture, Planning and Landscape at Newcastle University in 2017 and hold an MA in Critical Theory and Politics (Nottingham) and BA in Politics and American Studies (Nottingham). My doctoral research focused on how housing and protest evictions in the UK are conducted and enforced.
I joined USP in 2019 as Leverhulme Trust Early Career Fellow. My research project focuses on the global patterns, tactics, and industries of eviction enforcement and their effects on housing rights and social movements for land and home.
