Biografie

I work as a lecturer/researcher at the Cultural Geograhy Group. My research has mostly focussed on conservation tourism practices explored across various African and European destinations (e.g. Namibia, Kenya, Spain and Portugal). I am generally interested in understanding how associated tensions contribute to the formation of conservation landscapes, tourism practices, and wider socio-political relations.
