As an ESRC Postdoctoral Research Fellow, I am building on my PhD research (Thesis title: From the margins to the mainstream: imagining socioecological futures in Wales) in order to think more broadly about how human-environment relations are imagined, and possibilities for how they might be imagined otherwise. In particular, I am extending my research on the roles of art and storytelling and how these relate to novel forms of response to environmental crises. I am also interested - in a personal and academic capacity - in the new climate movements (for example, Extinction Rebellion), and the kinds of stories and imaginaries of social change associated with them.

Areas of expertise:

- Environment/climate change and society

- Environmental justice

- Social theory

- Cultural geographies

- Stories and narrative

- Environmental Humanities

- Environmental art and creativity
