Extreme mobilities and charitable fundraising

Supervisor(s): Professor Peter Merriman and Dr Kimberley Peters


After finishing undergraduate study Nina took some time out of education to gain experience within the workplace. She then returned to education in 2014, completing a masters in Landscape and Territory at Aberystwyth University. Nina’s research thesis for her MA looked specifically at one charity sporting event and sought to draw together issues surrounding mobility studies and charitable giving. Through the topics covered within the masters year and research project combined with her personal interests this lead to the conceptualisation of her PhD project.
