I'm an environmental geographer, currently reading for my doctorate. I am Australian and live between Sydney and Oxford, spending a good deal of my time reading - either on the beach (Sydney), in very old libraries (Oxford), or researching at field sites in the Pacific. I share the apartment with my partner John, an academic lecturing in political and legal theory. Originally from Glasgow John has lived in Oxford for 11 years. He has a ridiculously good memory, knows way too much about cinema, and is just all round good fun.
