I’m a Reader in Sociology at the University of York, UK. I write about culture, media, politics and society. For the last few years I’ve been focusing mainly upon questions around the politics of data and metrics. I’m a co-editor at Theory, Culture & Society, where I co-edit the standard issues of the journal as well as being a member of the editorial board. I’m also on the editorial boards of the journals Information, Communication & Society, Cultural Sociology, Big Data & Society and the Journal of Urban Cultural Studies. This site provides information about my writing along with links to my work.
