I am a human geographer, researching and writing about international development and resource politics. I am interested in the politics of nature conservation and extraction in southern Africa, and the challenges and opportunities presented by new digital technology for international development. After four years researching my PhD at the University of Edinburgh’s Institute of Geography on the political ecology of the Ponta do Ouro Partial Marine Reserve in Mozambique, I joined the Centre of African Studies at the University of Edinburgh where I continue my research in Mozambique, and teach in international development (in person and through online learning. My staff profile is available here. I am also a researcher on a large interdisciplinary project on blockchain technology and international development, working closely with Oxfam.
