After my BA in geography at UCL I worked in government research in Whitehall for five years. I then emigrated to Vancouver, Canada for three years, before taking maternity leave with my two children. I returned to university in 2019 to complete an MSc in Research Methods as part of an ESRC 1+3 Studentship, before beginning my PhD in 2021.

I am also a member of the board of directors for Livingmaps Network.
