I am an urban sociologist, working as a Leverhulme Early Career Research Fellow in the Department of Urban Studies and Planning, University of Sheffield, UK.


My wider research interests include:
- Social justice and urban inequality.
- Housing, property, and informality (home-less people & people-less homes).
- Squatting, trespass, occupation, and direct action.
- Social movements, grassroots campaigns, and activism.
- Urban and social theory.
- Epistemology, ethnography, and qualitative methods.


I have a Sociology BA (York, 2011), Social Research MA (York, 2012) and a PhD in Sociology (Warwick, 2016). My PhD thesis is now available as a book, entitled: 'Occupying London: Post-Crash Resistance and the Limits of Possibility'.
