PhD, MA, BSc (Hons)


I am a Lecturer in Human Geography with research interests at the intersection of social, cultural and political geography. My recent doctoral research examined contemporary issues of youth citizenship and national identity in the context of the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games and the Scottish independence referendum. Within this research study, I investigated the views and experiences of 16 and 17 year olds living in Glasgow, as they became among the first citizens in the UK to vote at this age. Through their involvement in the Commonwealth Games and newfound right to vote, I considered how these events enabled them to actively re-imagine and re-shape geographical understandings of the nation.
