cropped-photo1.jpgI’m a digital sociologist, consultant and event curator. I mainly work at the Centre for Social Ontology and The Sociological Review but I’m often available to help on projects I find interesting.

Here’s more information about my writing, publications and speaking (as well as what I like reading and listening to). I regularly organise events. My research interests are extremely broad but most of the topics I’m interested in fall within the general categories of digital sociology and sociological theory.

I edit The Sociological Imagination and podcast regularly. I’ve written thousands of blog posts in the last few years on my own sites and as guest posts elsewhere. There used to be a blog here and the archives are still available at the bottom of this page. I’ve worked on a extensive range of other web based projects in the past, including as managing editor of the LSE’s British Politics and Policy blog. I’m an assistant editor of Big Data & Society and social media associate editor of The International Journal of Social Research Methodology. I’m a member of the editorial boards of Discover Society and The Journal of Applied Social Theory.

I’ve had my research featured extensively in print and broadcast media around the world. I’ve developed knowledge exchange workshops based on my research and worked with artists to find alternative ways of communicating sociological ideas. I’ve facilitated many workshops on digital scholarship and scholarly communication, as well as being a regular invited speaker on these topics.
