I am Programme Director for the MA in Architectural History, and a Primary Supervisor for MPhil//PhD Architectural Design and Architectural History and Theory, and MArch Architecture Part 2 Thesis.
My research and teaching focus on how aesthetic, material, technological, biopolitical and ecological histories and theories inform contemporary architectural thinking and practice, and reflect my training in art history, philosophy and fine art.
My 3-year AHRC research project on wellbeing, equality and the UK housing crisis with Dr Beth Lord (Philosophy, University of Aberdeen) has published our film, Equal by Design (2016), made in collaboration with Lone Star Productions, and available here: www.equalbydesign.co.uk
This project develops from my studies of ecology and spatial practices in architecture, the visual arts and humanities in, Poetic Biopolitics: Practices of Relation in Architecture and the Arts (co-ed, 2016) and Architectural Relational Ecologies: Architecture, Nature and Subjectivity (ed. 2013).
Forthcoming chapters include: 'Housing biopolitics and care' (2016), 'Dissimilarity: Spinoza's geometric ratios and housing crisis' (2017), and 'Planetary aesthetics' (2017). Previous publications include: 'Spinoza's geometric and ecological ratios' (The Politics of Parametricism, eds. Shvartzberg and Poole, 2015), and Space, Geometry and Aesthetics: Through Kant and Towards Deleuze (2008) and Irigaray for Architects (2007).
I have given public and research talks on my work in the UK, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Netherlands, Australia and the US, and hold advisory appointments for: the American Society for Cybernetics (2013-); the EAHN Journal (2012-14) and Interstices Journal for Architecture and the Related Arts (2014-); AHRA (2009-15); the US Luce Irigaray Circle.
