He is author or editor of ten books including Qualitative Research Methods in Human Geography (4th edn Oxford 2015) and Geographies of the Super-Rich (Elgar 2013) and has had editorial roles with journals including Applied Geography; Ethics, Place and Environment; and Social and Cultural Geography. He is currently Editor-in-Chief of Geographical Research.

Iain is a recent past President of the Institute of Australian Geographers and is currently Vice-President of the International Geographical Union.

During his stay in the School of Economics, Finance and Management, Iain will be working with Professor Jonathan Beaverstock and looks forward to making connections with other colleagues in the Faculty of Social Sciences and Law, and the Cabot Institute, on the very emotive issue of, ‘The super-rich, inequality and emerging environmental challenges.’
