I have broad interests in the nexus between science, risk and governance. My work focuses on issues relating to the nature of expert authority, and the role of experts in debates about environmental and technological risk. I work closely with the Science and Technology Studies (STS), and the Sociology of Knowledge literatures in this regard.
In previous work I have looked at engineering debates about testing, safety and regulation in the civil aviation and nuclear spheres. My current research focuses on the risks of complex technological infrastructures (particularly nuclear power), and on the technopolitics of environmental debates (particularly radiological pollution).
