I am a social and environmental historian of Britain. My research explores the changing relationship between society and the environment in modern Britain. I am particularly interested how this relationship is expressed in popular culture and politics. I use a range of methodological and theoretical approaches to these issues, including oral history. My work tries to blend empirical historical practice and social theory.
My current research grapples with the problem of the environment and everyday life. Previous projects have studied urban change and popular politics in nineteenth-century London, and the historical political ecology of waste as both material and ideological problem in modernity.
