My research focuses on:
Emergent drug trends; meanings, motivations and consequences of illicit drug use; relationships between legal/illegal drug markets, policies and prevalence/patterns; gender and drug use.
Club studies, Youth Studies, electronic dance music cultures, night-time economy research
Social and criminal/deviant aspects of ICT and new media
Qualitiative research ie. in-situ self-report surveys of alcohol and drug use in NTE leisure spaces, and focus groups with young adults on 'sensitive' topics
I would be happy to receive PhD applications on the following topics:
Alcohol, novel psychoactive substances (NPW) and illegal drug use (risks, harms, pleasures); clubbing/raving; electronic dance music (EDM) cultures; crime, deviance and transgression in the night time economy; national and international drug policy; youth crime; cybercrime; crime and new technologies; crime and the media.
Through my links with Lancaster University's Centre for Gender and Women's Studies I'm also interested in potential doctoral students in the areas of: female illicit drug use; gender and drug use; gender and dance club cultures.
Crim 102 Crime and Social Life (first year)
Crim 337 Drugs, Crime and Society (final year)
Soc 491 Cybercrime (MSc)
I also contribute to the Centre for Gender and Women's Studies first year lecture programme and to the FASS Reasearch Training Programme
