I have recently been awarded my PhD in Geography at the University of Sussex.  My thesis, titled 'Pastoralism in the shadow of a windfarm: an ethnography of people, places and belonging in northern Kenya', is based upon twenty-two months of fieldwork between 2013 and 2015 with Samburu, Rendile and Turkana communities in Samburu and Marsabit Counties.
