Research interests

I am a Senior Lecturer in the Sociology of Class at the University of Glasgow. My work explores the complex relationship between urban restructuring and class restructuring, with a focus on housing accumulation, dispossession and resistance. This includes analyses of the changing urban political economy and class and everyday life in neighbourhoods and cities. My research offers conjunctural analyses of gentrification, evictions, and large-scale sporting events (Commonwealth Games 2014) and their impacts on working-class communities, with a strong focus on local community resistance and counter-hegemonic movements.
