I’m a Lecturer in Sociology, having joined Abertay from the University of York where I taught within the Department of Politics.
I completed my PhD in Social and Political Thought at the University of York in 2009. I also hold a BA in Education, a BA in Sociology and an MA in Political Philosophy.
My research and teaching interests cut across themes in critical social and political theory, political sociology and economic sociology/global political economy. I’m the author of Castoriadis and Critical Theory: Crisis, Critique and Radical Alternatives (Palgrave, 2014).
I’ve previously received the ‘Outstanding Teacher Award’ (2014), the ‘Outstanding Lecturer of the Academic Year Award’ (2015) and the 'Most Engaging Module Award' (2019) at the student-led Abertay Teaching Awards.
