Research overview

My research is interested in the emergence and transformation of sets of diverse, interwoven social practices. Building primarily upon different strands of contemporary practice theories, I contribute to inter and intra-disciplinary dialogues that critically analyse how varied practices interlink and explore creative methodologies for responding. This approach also underpins my engagement with diverse communities as an educational leader. Previous research has addressed diverse cases straddling the boundaries of home/away, leisure/tourism/migration, everyday routines/exceptions, and has also been underpinning by interests in temporalities and spatialities. Current interests include decolonising methodologies and transformations in educational leadership practices.

PhD supervision

I would be happy to work with students whose projects relate to my areas of interest, including social theories of practice; changes and transformations in everyday practices, consumption and careers; innovative and decolonising methodologies; mobilities (including tourism, transport, migration, global networks and circulation).

Current Teaching

In 2022-23 I am teaching on our first year Media and Cultural Studies module and convening the final year Media dissertations (with media practice variant).

Professional Role

I am currently the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences Director of Marketing and Recruitment.
