My main interests are in the sociology of protest, social movements, racism and ethnicity economic sociology, urban sociology, and sociological theory. In the fields of protest and racism and ethnicity studies I have worked most recently on the 2001 riots, South Asian women and higher education, and the impacts of the 7/7 London bombings on different ethnic and religious groups in West Yorkshire, and superdiversity in traditional retail markets.
With Dr. Yasmin Hussain I have recently completed projects on South Asian women and higher education, the impact of the London bombings, and the urban 'riots' in 2001. Previously I have carried out research and published extensively on unemployment and social protest, anti-poll-tax protest, and new social movements.
