Projects per year
I work at the intersection of sociology, politics and political economy to investigate how social and political order is imgained, produced and contested in a range of empirical contexts.
- Governance analysis: theorising governance, statehood and public policy as 'regimes of governing practices'
- Political economy of automating rule: the political economies, form and effects of AI technologies in governance.
- Migration governance and the production of socio-political order(s) in the EU and beyond.
I am Co-I, and management team lead for AI and Public Policy, on the UKRI Doctoral Training Centre on Accountable, Responsible and Transparent AI at Bath. I am a member of the British Standards Institute Committee for AI standards; their Expert Panel on Data and Information Management; and the IEEE working group on Procurement and Artificial Inteligence.
I have extensive public and policy engagement experience nationally and internationally, including presentations to parliamentary bodies and public servants, as well as dozens of media contributions.
I sit on the editorial boards of the Journal of Social Policy and Administration, and the Italian Journal of Social Policy.
I have supervised and co-supervised more than 10 PhD students to completion, and have twice been nominated for a university prize for excellence in doctoral supervision. I am always keen to hear from committed students working in my broad research areas.
- Mobile Welfare in a Transnational Europe: An analysis of Portability Regimes of Social Security Rights (TRANSWEL)
- Fellowship supervisor to Dr Thanos Maroukis on Jobs-to-Rent.
