Senior Lecturer Sociology, Social Policy and Criminology


Personal Statement

I am a sociologist, and my research tends to focus on architecture and capitalism and related things, such as the changing nature of cities, materiality and power, and the 'fixing' of surplus values of different kinds/the cultural forms that takes.

More generally, I'm interested in sociological theory, what is often called 'public sociology', and methodologies of social science.
