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 publishing, writing and the book, social housing and architecture, and social and political theory. I teach in the fields of work and economy, the sociology of conflict, and social theory. I am a member of the editorial board of the culture and politcs journal New Formations.
