Thomas Dekeyser is a cultural geographer and urban sociologist. His PhD at the University of Southampton was an ethnographic study into the globally emergent practice of 'subvertising': illegal interventions into urban advertising space (including graffiti scribbles, poster replacement, sabotage, and digital hacking). Three main fields of research interest emerged from this research: contemporary advertising power, illicit urban subcultures and theories of negativity.
