Nina Williams is Lecturer in Cultural Geography at UNSW Canberra, a role she has occupied since February 2019.

Nina obtained a BA (hons) in Geography at the University of Manchester in 2011; an MSc in Human Geography: Society and Space at the University of Bristol in 2012; and a PhD in Human Geography at the University of Bristol in 2017. Before commencing her current role at UNSW Canberra, Nina worked as a Research Associate in Urban Living in the department of Civil Engineering at the University of Bristol and as a Lecturer in Human Geography in the School of Geographical Sciences at the University of Bristol.

Nina's research explores conceptual innovations in the fields of non-representational theory, process philosophy, post-humanism, and speculative thinking. This theoretical approach has led Nina to conduct research in the contexts of art and curation, fashion and textiles, biodesign and speculative design, walking and mapmaking, and sonic geographies. Nina is also committed to the dissemination of research beyond the academy, having co-organised and secured funding for community and arts-based workshops and exhibitions. Nina’s current research project is developing a speculative ethical framework for theorising and conducting biodesign practice.
