My most recent research looks at astronomy and the sustainable development goals. In my Astronomy & Geophysics article (2020), I explored human capacity building, dark sky tourism, and public engagement as key examples.
I am also interested in the connection between astronomy and cultural relations. In 2021, the British Council published my essay, "Under one sky", which looks at astronomy as a global scientific endeavour, exploring the culture of astronomers and their collaborations, and how these relationships have developed over time. Using South Africa and the Development in Africa with Radio Astronomy programme as an example, the essay considers what this tells us about cultural relations, from individual to international scales.
