- Both Polar Regions
I am a polar geographer who works on both polar regions and has published many books, edited collections and articles on the geopolitics and governance of the Arctic and Antarctic. I have also worked for the UK government and the British Parliament on polar matters. In 2014-2015, for example, I served as specialist adviser to the House of Lords Select Committee on the Arctic. The Committee published in 2015 a report on the Arctic entitled, Responding to a Changing Arctic. I have supervised nearly 30 PhD students and mentored post-doctoral staff. I am currently Director of Research at my department at Royal Holloway.
