My primary research interest is social interaction in institutional and professional contexts, with a focus on power and vulnerability. Building on my ESRC-funded PhD project, my current research analyses police body-worn video footage to explore police-victim communication during first response call-outs at the scene of reported domestic abuse incidents.

Area of expertise

I am happy to supervise PhD students in relation to any of the above areas, including projects which focus on social interaction in different contexts.
