I joined Manchester Sociology in 2003, having taught in Sociology and Cultural Studies departments in London and studied at the universities of Sheffield, York, and Goldsmiths, from where I gained my PhD. My research is broadly located in political sociology and the sociology of culture and media, where I currently focus on the sociology of the book and publishing, social housing, and social and political theory. I am an affiliated member of CRESC and sit on the editorial board of the culture and politics journal New Formations. I teach in the fields of work and economy, the sociology of conflict, and social theory, and am currently the Director of Postgraduate Teaching.
