An Assistant Professor in the Department of Global and Sociocultural Studies at Florida International University, Kevin received his PhD from Ohio State University in 2011 and came to FIU in 2015, after holding a postdoc at Dartmouth College and teaching for three years at Aberystwyth University. Kevin’s research expertise is in critical security studies, risks & hazards, and biopolitics, particularly in the Caribbean. He has published widely in leading journals including Annals of the Association of American Geographers, Antipode, Conservation & Society, Geoforum, Geography Compass, Geopolitics, Limn, Politics, Resilience, Security Dialogue, and Society & Space. Since 2016, he has been editor of the Political Geography section of Geography Compass, a position from which he is stepping down in order to take up duties with PG.
Kevin will be joining associate editors Tor Benjaminsen, Halvard Buhaug, and Fiona McConnell (as well as myself) on the ever-expanding PG editorial team. In the meantime, Jo Sharp will begin winding down her tenure as the journal’s associate editor for the ‘Setting the Agenda’ section, as her five-year term comes to an end. Jo will complete the processing of submissions that are presently in her queue, but I will be taking up any subsequent submissions until a replacement for Jo is hired later this year.
