Personal profile

Biography

I am a human geographer with strong interest in cultural and political theory. My main research projects have focused on the geographies of tourism and travel and on the spatial theories of modernity, including conceptualizations of landscape, place and power. I have also written extensively on the relationship between space and biopolitics, with a particular focus on the work of philosopher Giorgio Agamben and legal theorist Carl Schmitt. In empirical terms, my work has been on Trieste (cosmopolitanism, border thinking, geographies of absence), Morocco (postcolonial geographies of travel) and the Mediterranean more broadly. Recently I have been focusing on camp and carceral geographies, with a particular focus on the archipelago of refugee camps in the Balkan region.
