His research interests revolve around the political economy of conservation and development, the politics of energy and extraction, ecotourism, new media and social theory. In 2011, he received an NWO (Dutch Research Foundation) Veni grant for a research project entitled ‘Nature 2.0: The Political Economy of Conservation in Online and Southern African Environments’. In 2015, he was awarded an NWO Vidi grant to investigate Crisis Conservation situations in Brazil, Indonesia and South Africa together with three PhDs and a postdoc.

Peace Parks and the Politics of Neoliberal Conservation in Southern Africa’ (Duke University Press, 2013) and the co-author of The Conservation Revolution: radical ideas for saving Nature beyond the Anthropocene (Verso, 2020, with Robert Fletcher). He is also the co-editor of ‘The Ecotourism / Extraction Nexus: Rural Realities and Political Economies of (un)Comfortable Bedfellows’ (Routledge, 2013, with Veronica Davidov) and Nature™ Inc: Environmental Conservation in the Neoliberal Age (University of Arizona Press, 2014, with Wolfram Dressler and Robert Fletcher).
