Most of my research relates to Urban Studies. In particular I am engaged with the challenges of how to represent and research the complexity and messiness of urban life. My PhD was an ethnographic study of urban change in Brixton. Currently I am exploring the ways in which paintings can be analysed as a form of urban knowledge.

The strand of research I am currently working on concerns paintings and the city. Recently I have published an article in The London Journal on this topic.

I am also in the process of publishing from my PhD a range of findings regarding urban change in Brixton. This work is based on ethnographic work which focuses on the intimate and everyday geographies of precarity, austerity, gentrification, and displacement.

I am a member of the editorial board of The London Journal.
