Mike is a Teaching Fellow in Digital Cultures. He joined the department in September 2017. He was awarded a PhD in Cultural Geography from Royal Holloway University of London in 2017, which examined everyday digital mapping practices. This project was co-funded by the Ordnance Survey and the EPSRC. He is a member of the Living Maps network, where he is an editor for the ‘navigations’ section and previously curated the seminar series.

Research Interests

Mike’s research is broadly interested in the digital and cultural geographies that emerge from the intersections between everyday life and digital technology. Recently he has turned his attention towards urban environments to examine the cultural geographies that emerge from the sharing economy and to examine how data-driven geo-visualisation technologies guide practices of urban planning and governance in the so-called ‘smart city’.
