Current details on my research are given on the blog and my main homepage

Hi, I work in the Department of Geography at the University of Manchester. My research focuses on conceptualising the socio-spatial power of digital technologies and urban infrastructures, virtual geographies, and the theorisation of visual representations, cartographic knowledge and novel methods of geographic visualisation.

I curated the well known Web-based Atlas of Cyberspaces (from 1995-2007) and have co-authored three books covering aspects of spatiality of computer technology: Mapping Cyberspace (Routledge, 2000), Atlas of Cyberspace (Addison-Wesley, 2001) and Code/Space (MIT Press, 2011). I have also co-edited a series of books, focused on the social and cultural meanings of new kinds of mapping practice: Geographic Visualization (John Wiley & Sons, 2008) and Rethinking Maps (Routledge, 2009), Classics in Cartography (Wiley-Blackwell 2010) and The Map Reader (Wiley-Blackwell 2011). I am also currently working on two further edited books and conducting primary research for a new monograph on Mapping Manchester with my colleague Chris Perkins.
