Gediminas is a human geographer interested in the politics of development in Sub-Saharan Africa. In his research he draws on critical theory, African studies and historical geographical materialism in narrating how the spaces created by international development processes in Africa shape the lives of vulnerable populations in profoundly contradictory ways. In his doctoral research he explored the politics of spatial exclusion in relation to extractive industries and population resettlement schemes in rural Mozambique. Besides his own work, Gediminas has carried out policy-oriented research with FAO, UNOPS and DFID across the region of Southern Africa.
