BA (Cantab), MA (Sheffield) Programme Director Geography with International Study Chair International Cartographic Association Maps and Society Research Commission 2007- I have taught and researched in Geography in Manchester since 1998, having previously run the university map libraries. My interests lie at the interface between mapping technologies and social and cultural practices, with ongoing research into performative aspects of contemporary mapping behaviour, and an emerging interest in play. These interests are reflected in eight edited and authored books and numerous academic articles and in my teaching with courses currently focusing on Envisioning Space and Maps in Society.

I have also undertaken a range of voluntary roles having previously been a founding member and Chair of the South Yorkshire Design and Architecture Centre for a number of years, sitting on the Doncaster Design Review Panel and a Non-Executive Board member of Business Link South Yorkshire. My research interests centre upon the design, management and regeneration of towns and cities with a particular emphasis on sensory experience and perception, and my PhD examined the role of smell in urban design.

Meanwhile, "Situationist"was featured throughout much of 2011 in an exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art in New York.
