My research is broadly in the areas of political and social geography, focusing in particular on:
- Online networks, communities and spaces: the implications of these spaces for communication, organisation and activism. Recent foci include science blogging and human trafficking.
- Policing, crime, data and policy: changes to crime, policing and law enforcement, alongside broader debates about evidence, policy and data analysis.
- Conflict: the development and deployment of different ways of fighting, from the networked warfare of Afghan insurgency through to the 'war on terror' and urban warfare.
I teach on the following modules:
- A World Of Plenty? Environment, The City And Society
- Dynamic Human Worlds: Society, Culture, Economy
