Peter Adey is a professor of Geography at the Royal Holloway University of London. His work lies at the intersection between space, security and mobility, and Cultural and Political Geography. He is a former Chair of the Social and Cultural Geography Research Group, one of the largest research groups of the Royal Geographical Society. In 2011 he was awarded a Philip Leverhulme Prize for his contributions to Human Geography. Much of his research has revolved around the putative ‘new mobilities paradigm’, mobility futures and infrastructures.
