  • Lecturer, Department of Geography, King's College London


George is an interdisciplinary geographer with specialisms that span the physical, social and cultural dimensions of geography, particularly climate. He joined King's in September 2013 having undertaken doctoral and postdoctoral research at the University of Brighton and University of Sussex. Prior to this George worked as an environmental consultant at Waterman Environmental. 

George's work argues for a historically-informed understanding of climate. This calls for a greater attention to pre-industrial or 'natural climate variability' and also an appreciation of the deeper historical interrelationship of climate and society, in the way that climate has been constructed and understood and the ways that human societies have responded to a beneficent and destructive climate.

George is affiliated with the ACRE (Atmospheric Circulation Reconstructions over the Earth) initiative and the Centre for Integrated Research on Risk and Resilience. He is also an associate of the Centre for World Environmental History.

George is also the tutor for study abroad (incoming and outgoing) Geography students.
