Personal profile


My specialist teaching, supervisory and research interests focus on architectural interdisciplinarity and also on notions of commons and practices of commoning. My commons research was the subject of a major recent AHRC award and my work on architectural interdisciplinarity, particularly with archaeology and anthropology, is the subject of a number of publications: 'Occlusions of the Operational Sequence' in Architecture and Anthropology (ed. Adam Jasper, Routledge 2018) and Scandalous Space: between architecture and archaeology published by Spurbuchverlag (2019) are the most recent.

As a co-investigator on Wastes and Strays: the past, present and future of English urban commons, a 3-year AHRC-funded interdisciplinary research project, my research draws together historical, archaeological and legal aspects of urban commons and uses that knowledge to engage with local communities across England. Led by Newcastle Law School, Wastes and Strays is partnered by, amongst others, the National Trust and the Open Spaces Society.
