Supervision

I am interested in supervising PhD students whose research is informed by:

  • Classical sociology
  • Critical theory
  • Modern social and political philosophy.

I am interested in empirical projects whose aim is to explore the ethical dimension of social organisations, practices and relationships.

Originally from Sheffield, I did a degree in Communication Studies at Nottingham Trent University, followed by a British Academy funded PhD in the Philosophy department at Lancaster University. After my PhD I was a Simon Marks Research Fellow in the Sociology department at Manchester University, before joining Cardiff University as a lecturer in SOCSI in 2000. I am a UCU rep for the School, and a member of the charitable organisation Giving What We Can. My current admin role is SOCSI Assessment and Feedback Lead.
