Paige Patchin is a feminist geographer whose work looks at structures of power in biological, health, and earth sciences. Her research interests include infectious disease, race, and empire, genetics and epigenetics, reproductive health, and the Anthropocene. Her current book project looks at the Zika public health emergency between Puerto Rico and United States. It takes the circulation of the virus within empire and patriarchy as a point of departure for rethinking reproduction.

Before joining UCL, she was a PhD student in the Geography Department at the University of British Columbia and worked in research development at the University of Nottingham. Her work is published in the Transactions of the Institute of British Geographers and Annals of the American Association of Geographers. She is a co-editor of ACME: An International Journal for Critical Geographies
