I am a researcher, writer and educator working on sonic communication and geography. Concentrating on shifts in economic and political landscapes, I investigate how these shifts are translated in the sounds that we hear, how we are affected by them, and how we listen and respond. My work is concerned with the ways that sound and communication are shaped by, and shape, our relations to one another, to the architectures and infrastructures around us, to our larger atmospheres and ecologies, and to the forces of power and governance that we experience and intervene in. Through this lens I have written on themes of voice and space, labour and surveillance and experimental politics. I am also developing sound based methods through which to pose broader political and economic questions.

I recently authored the book Experimental Politics and the Making of Worlds, which explores creative activism as a means for opening up channels of communication and finding common sites for contestation. Examining campaigns around living and working conditions, migration and border crossing, and higher education, Experimental Politics and the Making of Worlds argues for creativity within strategies of enacting the worlds we want to live in. (...) At present I am based in the Department of Sociology, Goldsmiths College, University of London, where I lecture and convene the MA World Cities and Urban Life. Before joining the department, I was an ESRC Postdoctoral Fellow in the Department of Geography, Royal Holloway, University of London. I have held lectureship posts in Media, Journalism and Communication at RMIT University, Melbourne and Birkbeck College University of London. I graduated in 2010 from the University of Melbourne with a PhD in Culture and Communication/ Cultural Geography. My doctoral research was supported by an Australian Research Council Grant.
