Anna’s recent work has explored drone sensing, has sought to complicate existing understandings of volume by bringing the analytic and sensibility of gentleness to bear, and has brought into dialogue feminist geopolitics and drone scholarship to develop the idea of ‘everyday droning‘ as a honing and homing of military technology and drone capitalism.’ Elsewhere, Anna has reflected on the ways in which both small military drones are normalised and naturalised at the tradeshow, and the (potential) implications of the advent of commercial drones on urban skylines and lives. More widely, Anna is interested in feminist understandings of territory and the methodological challenges raised by the ‘volumetric’ turn in and beyond human geography.

Alongside building her academic publication profile, Anna has written accessible online pieces including reflections on emergency service drone use, the public perception of dronesconservation dronesevolving drone threatsdomestic drone futures, the Gatwick drone incident, and stopping rogue drones.
