Research Themes and Scholarly Interests

I am an ultra-realist criminologist and co-founder of the deviant leisure research network. To-date, my research has focused upon the social harms that emerge at the intersection of commodified leisure and consumer capitalism, publishing on issues around violence, gambling, consumerism, social media, tourism and environmental harm, parkour and freerunning, urban space and crime control. My research interests span the fields of criminology, leisure studies, psychoanalysis, moral and political philosophy, cultural geography and urban studies. I am currently dedicated to developing a theory of social harm rooted in a post-liberal ethics.
