My research interests and practice fall within the areas of urban cultural studies, cultural memory, and digital spatial humanities. With a background in anthropology and cultural studies my work explores the intersection between space, place, mobility, and memory with a particular focus on film and popular music cultures. I have worked as a researcher across the School of the Arts on the multi-disciplinary projects 'City in Film: Liverpool's Urban Landscape and the Moving Image' (2006-8), 'Mapping the City in Film: a Geo-Historical Analysis' (2008-10), and 'Popular Music Heritage, Cultural Memory and Cultural Identity' (POPID) (2010-12). I am the author of 'Film, Mobility and Urban Space: a Cinematic Geography of Liverpool' (2012), and editor or co-editor of the following collections: 'Deep Mapping' (2015/16); 'Mapping Cultures: Place, Practice and Performance' (2012/15); 'Sites of Popular Music Heritage' (2014); 'Locating the Moving Image: New Approaches to Film and Place' (2013), 'Liminal Landscapes: Travel, Experience and Spaces In-between' (2012), and 'The City and the Moving Image: Urban Projections' (2010). I am currently working on a follow-up collection of articles on deep mapping focused around questions of method and 'spatial bricolage' and a monograph, 'Spatial Anthropology: Excursions in Liminal Space', scheduled for publication with Rowman & Littlefield in 2018.
