Research Profile

My interests lie first and foremost in 'riots' and related forms of urban violence and protest. I was involved in a major university-newspaper collaborative study of the English 2011 riots, and am currently still teaching, researching and writing in that field. In addition, I have a long-standing interest in policing research.
