As geography increasingly engages with multiple ways of knowing, opportunities to contribute to research have also expanded. This paper contributes a perspective on academic inclusion as a neuro-diverse geographer working in a more-than-human context. In doing so, it seeks to open dialogue around the potential for neuro-diverse contributions to research by engaging reflexively with sensory ways of knowing and doing, and differences in how autistic and non-human social engagements are considered. To do this, I draw on a range of autobiographic literature, including reflexive exercises in relation to my own research work.
