Personal profile


My research interests lie at the intersection of cultural and political geography, coalescing into three main themes: i) geographies of disaster, trauma and exception; ii) geographies of representation, testimony and performance; and iii) spatial philosophies of community, biopolitics and affect. These three themes are united by my abiding interest in poststructuralism and deconstruction, and I am currently engaged in projects investigating the spaces and spatialities of Nazi Germany and the Holocaust, and post-disaster communities and landscapes in Tohoku, Japan. I previously held lectureship positions at the University of Tokyo.
