Nicholson read Social Anthropology at Trinity College, University of Cambridge, was awarded an MPhil in Migration Studies from St Antony’s College, University of Oxford, and holds a PhD in Human Geography.

A former Parliamentary researcher and development consultant, Dr Nicholson teaches courses at the University of Cambridge on international development, international migration, and the politics of climate change. At Cambridge, Dr Nicholson also teaches a well-received course on the political, cultural, and historical significance of social media, which he is currently turning into a book.
