Assistant Professor, Faculty of Social Sciences



My teaching and research are about urban change and inequality in the context of global economic restructuring. My current work focuses on the spaces of logistics, the fast-growing industry that manages the movement of goods through global supply chains. My doctoral dissertation examined the web of urban change and conflict surrounding the recent expansion of the Panama Canal. This research took me to Panama City, Los Angeles, and New York - three of the busiest container ports in the Americas - to explore the reorganization of commodity flows and the struggles that have ensued over land, labour, and the environment.

Before coming to Nottingham, I was a Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC) Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of British Columbia. I completed my PhD (2018) in geography and MSc (2009) in urban planning at the University of Toronto. I grew up in Vancouver, Canada.
