Bio/Research

I am an Associate Professor in the Department of Sociology and hold a Canada Research Chair (Tier 2) in Surveillance Studies. Until August 2009, I was Reader in Surveillance Studies in the Global Urban Research Unit at Newcastle University in the UK, where I have recently been appointed a Visiting Fellow. I had an ESRC Research Fellowship for a project called 'Cultures of Urban Surveillance', which looked at the globalization of surveillance in different global cities. I have been Visiting Professor in the Postgraduate Program in Urban Management at the Pontifical Catholic University of Parana, Curitiba, Brazil in 2009 and Visiting Fellow in the School of Social Sciences at Waseda University in Tokyo, Japan in 2006.

I am a member of the Surveillance Studies Centre at Queen’s. I am also Editor-in-Chief of Surveillance & Society, the international journal of surveillance studies, and a founder-member of the Surveillance Studies Network. In 2006 I coordinated the influential Report on the Surveillance Society for the UK Information Commissioner (ICO) and organised submissions to the UK House of Commons and House of Lords inquiries on surveillance. More recently I was one of the initiators of the European Science Foundation COST action, ‘Living in Surveillance Societies’ (LiSS), of which I remain an associate member.
