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 curremtly Director of the Centre for Housing Research, and a lecturer within the Department of Geography & Sustainable Development.

I am a leading member of the Housing Studies Association (a UK learned society), and currently 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 also a member of the ESRC peer review college, and act as a reviewer for a range of journals spanning Human Geography and Social and Urban Policy.

I am an active tweeter and listed in the LSE Impact Blog’s Social Science Academics on Twitter.  I am also the managing editor of the newly launched Critical Urbanist’s blog.  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.
