BiographyI am a lecturer in human and environmental geography in the department of geography at Royal Holloway University of London. My research has involved field work in northern British Columbia and Quebec, Canada, working with northwest coast, Cree, and Inuit peoples. Research in the UK has taken me to Wales and Scotland to explore modern day place-name performances and practices involved in tourism and everyday life.
Areas of Research / Professional Expertise
Memetics of place, counter-mapping, critical geographic information systems (GIS), global positioning systems (GPS), geographical name-tracking networks
Modern day rogation practices, beating the bounds, rambling, psychogeography, flanerie, mapping while walking

High resolution DEMs obtained from LiDAR topographic data have led to improved landform inventories (e.g. landslides and fault scarps) and understanding of geomorphic event frequency. Here we use airborne LiDAR mapping to investigate meltwater pathways associated with the Tweed Valley palaeo ice-stream (UK).

Research by Eugene Hunn (1996) suggested that toponymic density and population density are roughly equal for a range of indigenous groups across North America. In Wemindji, Quebec, historic and current toponymic and population data support Hunn's observation.
