Short presentation

I'm a geographer interested in various aspects of Western capitalism, both today and historically. Based at the Institute for Housing and Urban Research at Uppsala University, I have particular interests in urban and housing issues, although I continue to do research more widely.

My recent publications include two books published by Verso, The New Enclosure: The Appropriation of Public Land in Neoliberal Britain (2018) and Rentier Capitalism: Who Owns the Economy, and Who Pays for It? (2020).

I have worked at Uppsala University since 2008.

Previously, I studied at Oxford University (BA, 1993), the University of British Columbia (MA, 1995) and the University of Auckland (PhD, 2008).
