Overview

I am a political geographer who joined the department as a Lecturer in April 2020. Before that I was a Lecturer in geography at the University of Nottingham for five years and completed my PhD there before that too. My work is broadly on borders, mobility and violence and to date has almost entirely been in Latin America. I am currently working on a research project looking at abortion im/mobilities across Latin America.

Broad Research Specialisms

  • Reproductive justice, primarily abortion access in Latin America

  • Borders and border violence

  • Feminist geopolitics

  • The politics of representation

Qualifications

PhD in Human Geography, University of Nottingham
MA in Landscape & Culture (Human Geography, University of Nottingham)
BA in Human Geography, University of Nottingham

Research

Research interests

My research concerns the spatiality of reproductive health in Latin America. I am interested in the spatial dynamics of abortion access and the ways in which abortion prohibition has been resisted using different technologies. My interest in mobility and the regulation of mobility takes into account both bodies that move and medication and medical technologies that are transported. I examine these spatial movements through biopolitics and feminist geolegalities.

My research up to this has focused on borders and violence in Latin America. I have examined the history of violence in one border city, Arica in northern Chile to understand how over the past ninety years violence has shaped and has been shaped by the Chile-Peru border. In particular I have examined the following themes:

- Biopolitics and health at borders with a particular focus on HIV/AIDS and abortion

- The role of international diplomacy and law in demarcating and managing global borders, both on land and sea

- The economics of the borderlands, contrasting state and regional initiatives and management

- Military violence in the borderlands

Research projects

I am working on a Wellcome Trust funded research project entitled Abortion Border Crossings in Latin America’ where I am exploring how abortions are accessed through travel and transportation.
