I gained my PhD in Sociology from Manchester in 2006 and worked for a year as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow before becoming a Lecturer in Sociology in September 2007. I am currently the Programme Director for Sociology, and oversee our new Professional Development course for undergraduates (ProD). I conduct research into collective actions orientated towards social change, such as those that take place within social movements and protest events, but also in our everyday lives outside of them. I co-lead the research group movements@manchester and I am also a member of the Mitchell Centre for Social Network Analysis, and the Morgan Centre for the Study of Everyday Lives. I am an editor of the journal Social Movement Studies, and sit on the editorial advisory board of Manchester University Press.
