Max Daniels serves as a Fellow at the Polar Research and Policy Initiative. Max graduated with a BA in Human Geography from Durham University. His interests lay in a diverse range of subjects, including political and urban geographies with a cross-disciplinary focus on Arctic governance, while his dissertation analysed the regulatory framework of Antarctic tourism.
Following experience in the travel industry, he is now completing his MA in Geopolitics, Territory and Security at King’s College London. He has pursued his studies in international spaces and the poles, with projects focusing on the legal aspects of territorial and border disputes in the Arctic, and the Antarctic’s environmental geopolitics.
Outside of academia, Max’s interests are equally diverse, but art is a particular passion; and his dream remains to visit Antarctica itself (having spent so much time writing about the great white continent).
