I am a political sociologist with a focus on the theory and politics of immigration, otherness and the media. Prior to my appointment at Leeds Trinity University  I taught Media and Cultural Studies at the University of Greenwich and European Politics at Lancaster University. Most of my work concerns the way international immigration contributes to the reorganisation of national and intranational societies.

I welcome PhD projects focusing on social and political theory, immigration, sovereignty and national identity, European politics and governance. 

Research interests

My research interests include political campaigns and communication; immigration, automation and labour; immigration and European politics.
