I am a Professor of Social Geography and University Dean of Social Justice here at Newcastle. As Professor of Social Geography, I am a member of the research cluster and the research cluster, both in Geography, where I supervise a large group of postdoctoral researchers and PhD students. I am also a member of the in the School of Geography, Politics and Sociology. As the University Dean of Social Justice, I lead on embedding the principles of social justice within the different functions of Newcastle University.
My research and teaching interests centre upon the challenges and complexities of social inequality and justice, and how these interrelate with debates about equality and diversity. More specifically, my work draws attention to the exclusionary ways in which various forms of discrimination and marginalisation – such as racism, sexism, Islamophobia, sizism and ageism – shape people’s everyday lives, structure the resources available to them and influence who they become. This work is built upon a commitment to empirical research that is informed both by current debates in academic literatures and theoretical understandings about intersectionality, society and space, as well as – where appropriate – concerns of relevance to policy makers and practitioners. I provide the Secretariat for the Cross Party Group on in the Scottish Parliament that was set up in 2018.
My work tends to draw upon debates in urban and social geography and is motivated by anti-racism and feminist geography. There are four main area of research and these include:
Racism, Islamophobia and Muslim identities
- The everyday lives and spatialities of young Muslims
- Islamophobia and anti-Muslim acts
Intersectionality, equality and diversity
- Minority groups experiences of university
- Uses and applications of intersectionality
Young people, place and identity
- Young people, social identities and political inequalities
- Youth transitions and intergenerational relations
Masculinities, ethnicities and place
- Religious, racialised and ethnicised masculinities
- Constructions of hegemonic and marginalised masculine identities
I am also interested in exploring issues connected with the use of various qualitative methods including participatory action research approaches, focus groups as well as research ethics.
Please feel free to contact me if you are interested in pursuing PhD or postdoctoral research (such as a Marie Skłodowska-Curie fellowship) on topics related to the research areas noted above.
I have previously served as the Research Director for Geography (2017-2018), the Academic Director of the ESRC North East Doctoral Training Centre (2015-2017), the Postgraduate Director for the School of Geography, Politics and Sociology (2010 - 2013), and as the Director of Postgraduate Research for Geography (2008-2012). I was promoted to a Personal Chair in 2012 after earlier promotions to Reader and Senior Lecturer following my arrival in Newcastle in 2007. Before this, I worked at Lancaster University as a Lecturer in Human Geography (in what was the Department of Geography) where I also completed a PGCert in Academic Practice.

I have a PhD from the University of Edinburgh and an MRes and BA(Hons) from the University of Strathclyde in Glasgow.

I make a small contribution to postgraduate modules and workshops on HSS8104 Qualitative Methodology in the Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences (on focus groups), and Research in the Wider Context (about publishing in the social sciences). I have previously contributed to HSS8006 ‘Managing a PhD’ sessions about managing your supervisor and about securing ethical approval for your research.
I am interested in promoting excellence in postgraduate teaching and supervision, particularly in mentoring and coaching postgraduate students to publish their work in international peer-reviewed journals. I regularly convene writing and publishing workshops for doctoral students; please contact me if you would like me to convene a workshop. Here is a blog post about publishing as a postgraduate based on a presentation for the British Sociological Association Postgraduate Forum.
In 2011, I was awarded a Vice Chancellor's Distinguished Teacher Award. I was nominated and shortlisted for a Newcastle Teaching Excellence Award in 2013 for Innovative Teaching Methods and I was nominated for a Newcastle Teaching Excellence Research Supervisor of the Year Award in 2014.
In previous years, I have contributed to the following modules:
Geo2043 Key Methods in Human Geography
Geo2100 Migration, belonging and everyday geopolitics: contested geographies of New York City (module leader)
Geo2110 Social Geographies
Geo2111 Doing Geographical Research: Theory and Practice
