Research overview

My research is driven by a curiosity about changes in everyday life in the context of global mobilities of people, objects, and resources. I’m particularly interested in using theories of social practice to understand the dynamics of heterogeneous mobilities, and have studied cases of leisure, tourism, new media art and return migration. As a part of the DEMAND Centre, I work on projects looking at infrastructural adaptations and conceptualizing energy use in everyday life. I also have an interest in developing creative methodological and engagement tools for diverse communities, and will be contributing to this aspect of DEMAND’s work.

PhD supervision

I would be happy to work with students whose projects relate to my areas of interest, including everyday life; mobilities (including tourism, transport, migration, global networks and circulation); theories of practice; consumption; material objects, cultures and networks; infrastructures and dynamics of energy demand.


As an Academic Fellow, I spend one half of my time doing teaching and administration in the Department of Sociology and the other half working as a researcher within the DEMAND Centre.

Current Teaching

In 2015-16 I am teaching a hands-on methodological course for undergraduates (SOCL 201 Skills for researching social life) and a block of Part I Media and Cultural Studies addressing Consumption.
