I completed my PhD at Loughborough university. My thesis investigated hostile architecture and its effects on the street homeless. As this project required no thought experiment – the reality was unfamiliar enough that the research did not require a reframing fantasy but a presentation of our actual towns and cities – my thesis also involved a deep discussion on storytelling methods for political theory. In this, I cultivated an interest in alternative modes of delivery and epistemologies, such as moral sentimentalism, genealogy, and Black feminist thought. I am the module lead for the Political Theory and Power, Politics and Morality courses.
