I joined Newcastle University School of Architecture, Planning and Landscape in 2018 after spending most of my career in the United States. I was previously Professor of Geography at the University of Kentucky, and have also held academic posts at Georgia State University in Atlanta, and George Mason University in Virginia. I grew up in Chester and the Welsh border county of Shropshire.
My main interests are in how and why geolocational technologies affects urban and everyday experience and wellbeing. In particular, I’m very interested in the effects of surveillance on privacy, spatial Big Data and algorithmic decision-making. To address these questions, I analyze how digital landscapes of algorithms and data are planned, mapped and produced. I also have a recent interest in the geolocational implications of biometric platforms such as facial and emotional recognition technologies, and the possibilities of building AI/ML that do not treat people as data subjects.
