Dr Marijn Nieuwenhuis
I have recently moved to Durham after 9 years in Warwick University's Politics and International Studies Department, where I received also my PhD. Before then, I have lived, studied and worked for long periods of time in different cities across China and Europe.
My trans-disciplinary research is at the intersection of Geography and International Relations. My current research focuses on the 'politics of the air' and deals with questions of technology, pollution, security, territory and governance. The research I work on is primarily, but not exclusively, focused on discussing these themes in a Chinese context.
I also consider local engagement important which is why I lead a local stories project in Coventry.
