I came to Manchester University in 2008, having first studied at the University of Warwick. My research focuses on collective action, politics and everyday consumption practices. I’m particularly interested in how these play out in processes of change such as through protests and occupations, political or politicised forms of consumption and lifestyle, and shifting patterns and organisation of daily life. I chair Manchester’s long-standing research group on social movements movements@manchester, and am a member of the Sustainable Consumption Institute and the Morgan Centre for the Study of Everyday Lives. I am reviews editor at Social Movements Studies and serve on the ESA Sociology of Consumption research network board.
