My research is focused on the social characteristics and political behaviour of elites. I also have experience doing health services research. I have been published in The British Journal of Sociology, The Journal of British Studies, Sociology, Political Studies, Voluntary Sector Research, Heart, The Journal of Public Health and The Journal of Epidemiology and Public Health among other journals. I am currently working on a project looking at the British aristocracy in the 20th and 21st Centuries. My research has been funded by the Department of Health and the ESRC

My research is primarily focused on elites. I have completed projects on corporate elites, members of the House of Lords and the hereditary aristocracy. I have examined topics including club membership, charitable donations and political donations

I am currently involved in projects evaluating Cullum Centres for autistic children in Surrey and the elimination of advertising for high fat and sugary foods in Yorkshire and Humber.
