I have worked in the Sociology DA at the University of Manchester since 2007. I am currently the Director of Teaching and Learning for Sociology. I conduct research into collective actions orientated towards social change, such as those that take place within social movements and protest events, but also in our everyday lives outside of them. I am particularly interested in the role that social networks play in participation in social movements and protest events. I co-lead the research group movements@manchester and I am also a member of the Mitchell Centre for Social Network Analysis, and the Morgan Centre for the Study of Everyday Lives. I am an editor of the journal Social Movement Studies, and sit on the editorial advisory board of Manchester University Press. I am also part of the editorial team for the book series Transforming Capitalism (Rowman & Littlefield Int.)
