My research to date has mainly concerned the social psychology of prejudice and discrimination, particularly in relation to gender and sexualities. I am interested in the integration and development of theory relating to this area, as well as the application of qualitative methods to exploring it empirically. For example, my most recent work has focussed on what ‘everyday’ sexism and heterosexism look like in practice; how they become relevant and are managed, and to what effects - for instance, in terms of conflict/resolution and the (re)production of inequality.
