Sarah Becklake

Post-Doctoral Research Fellow


My broad research interests include mobilities, development, security, and inequalities.

I am currently an ESRC-funded Post-Doctoral Research Fellow working at the intersection of tourism and (in)securities. My current project, entitled ‘Touristic Competition, Securitisation, and the Creation of (In)Securities in Guatemala’, has been funded through the Global Challenges Research Fund.

Previous to this position, I worked as a Research Associate in the Centre for Mobilities Research on an EU-funded project looking at the role of ICT in public protection and disaster relief.
