Areas of Research

Risk; Theory; Inequality; Environment; Finance; Digital
My current research explores some of the interconnections between contemporary risk and inequality. By trying to develop frameworks that can understand the diverse impacts of environmental, financial and digital risk my research seeks to analyze the various ways in which changes in contemporary risk are affecting existing power relations. I also have more general research and teaching interests, including classical and contemporary social theory; the sociology of risk (including the work on Mary Douglas and Luhmann), environmental sociology, economic sociology, social theory and the law, and the sociology of the digital and of finance and have published and presented work on each of these different areas.
