I am a lecturer in Sociology and Criminology at the University of Gloucestershire. I focus on in/security and identity on digital platforms such as YouTube, Twitter, Facebook and online news websites asking what practices of violence these discourses make possible. Common sub themes in my work include violence, militarisation, gender, technology, states, Orientalism and the everyday. I have an expertise in discourse analysis, digital methods and visual material such as images and videos. I sometimes publish on teaching, too.
