His research focuses on media and cultural politics with a particular emphasis on the dynamics of social and cultural remembrance, social movements and environmental politics. His PhD research (2009-2013, Loughborough University) examined the remembrance of the Union Carbide Gas Disaster in Bhopal (India), undertaking an ethnographic and multi-scalar analysis of the institutional, social and personal memorialisation of the event. He is currently developing a research project examining local level commemoration of the Great War in the UK.
