Accepting PhD Students

PhD projects

My research focuses in two areas – developing critical understandings of the state (particularly how states materialize and exercise power, and the practices of state representation through geographies of diplomacy); and on critical governance approaches to natural resource management (particularly water, and its complex associations with global change and social-ecological and socio-technical systems). I have 11 doctoral student completions and currently supervise five PhDs. With colleagues, I have a doctoral studentship cohort programme attached to a NERC-SHEAR consortium grant (2018-2021).

I welcome ideas for doctoral research projects in the following areas:
- governance of natural resource management
- critical geopolitics
- political geographies of the state; state spatialities; and forms of state representation, including diplomacy
