Projects per year
My work aims to enable a better understanding of the different ways in which ethnicity has meaning and relevance in people's lives, both for developing awareness of potential group affiliations and as a driver of health and other inequalities. It engages particularly with the negative impact of forms of racist victimisation on these processes. My work on social inclusion among those with ethnic and religious minority backgrounds, including Muslims, has made a significant contribution to Government evidence on processes of radicaliation, via both the Home Affairs Select Committee and the Parliamentary Office of Science and Technology.
I maintain a close relationship with the Race Equality Foundation, charity and third sector strategic partner to the NHS and research colleagues in the Universities of Manchester, Leeds and UCL.
Prior to taking up my post at Bristol, I was a senior research fellow in the Department of Epidemiology and Public Health at UCL.
