I am an inter-disciplinary, qualitative social scientist.  I joined the University of St Andrews in 2010, having previously held a prestigious Urban Studies postdoctoral fellowship at the University of Glasgow (2007-10), exploring political geographies of the city. I am currently Director of the Centre for Housing Research and a lecturer within the Department of Geography & Sustainable Development.

Since 2008, I have been a leading member of the Housing Studies Association (a UK learned society), and have recently become Chair of the Association.  I’ve also been a member of the editorial board for the journal of Housing Studies since 2010, and was Reviews Co-editor between 2010-12.  Previously, I’ve also been an editorial board member of Social Policy and Society.

I am an active tweeter and listed in the LSE Impact Blog’s Social Science Academics on Twitter.  During my academic career I have led and contributed to research funded by the ESRC, Leverhulme, Carnegie and the British Academy.  My work is both policy-relevant and theoretically informed, engaging with international debates on Foucauldian governmentality theory.
