Course Director - Geography and International Development
I have taught a range of human geography topics over the years but the issues that I’m most passionate about are the relationships between human societies and nature. Much of my current research and teaching is focused on contemporary issues of resource governance, with particular emphasis on forests, parks and local food systems in Tanzania, Rwanda, Laos and elsewhere.
The Geography and International Development course has been a great success and I’m sure you will appreciate its contemporary relevance. So many of the important challenges we face today are global in nature and involve geographical connections between north and south: climate change, migration, food security and poverty to mention a few key ones. At UEA you have the opportunity to study with a team of highly experienced human geographers within a School of International Development – an ideal place to pursue this pioneering course.
I look forward to meeting you in Norwich and contributing to what I am sure will be a wonderful and fulfilling three years for you.
