Research Summary
I work on critical geopolitics and security, with reference to two main areas:
 
Relationships between contemporary art and geopolitics

I research contemporary art practice as a field in which geopolitics may be represented and performed differently. I focus particularly on the work of artists who address issues of security, the war on terror and the invasion and occupation of Afghanistan and Iraq. I have been awarded a British Academy Mid-Career Fellowship for the academic year 2011-2012, for  a programme of research and public engagement on artistic responses to the 2003 invasion and subsequent occupation of Iraq.

The meaning and role of security in global health

I research what is often called the securitization of global health. I explore the shift towards conceptualizing and managing global health issues such as HIV/AIDS and other infectious diseases in terms of security, and the  renewed interest and engagement of military and security actors in global health. Drawing on governmentality and political-economic approaches, my work seeks to clarify the geopolitical stakes and dimensions of global health.

I am a co-editor of the Critical Geopolitics book series and the journal Medicine Conflict and Survival. I am a Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society and served as Secretary of the RGS-IBG Political Geography Research Group from 2008-2011.
