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.

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 2013-14 I am teaching hands-on methodological courses for undergraduates (SOCL 201/202 Sociological Research Skills and Techniques) and MA students (SOCL 919 Research Projects in Practice). I am also designing a new block for Part I Sociology on Everyday Consumption.
