Research

My research has crossed the boundaries between Sociology and Criminology, but has always focused around the importance of space and place in a social context.

This has taken the form of academic enterprise projects

  • investigating the nature of crime in a specific built environment
  • evaluating Policing initiatives surrounding managing high crime districts of a large Northern city
  • studying the impact of deindustrialisation on Northern towns
  • evaluating the nature of the space within the contemporary airport terminal building
  • mobility and accessibility in the contemporary built environment

I am primarily a qualitative researcher, employing visual and audio methods where appropriate, but have also undertaken large scale quantitative studies.
