My research interests focus on three main areas: 1) Geopolitical/sociopolitical research on contestations, peace and conflict related to place. 2) Urban political geographic research linked to cities and public space. 3) Practical pedagogic research in CLIL/EFL contexts, with a special focus on Global Issues (e.g. peace, environment)
