I am a criminology lecturer and sociologist of religion. My research predominantly focuses on nonreligion, but I am interested in how and where people find a sense of connection, as well as what values and beliefs people hold (especially Millennials). From 2018-2019 I worked as a postdoctoral researcher (Co-I) on an Understanding Unbelief grant called "Reaching for a New Sense of Connection?" which contributed to mapping the diversity of people who say they have no religion by using survey, social media and interview data, travelling to six countries (UK, Netherlands, Germany, Poland, Norway and Romania) across 25 towns and cities. I am expecting to publish my monograph: Nonreligion & the Sunday Assembly based Routledge in 2020 as well as a number of forthcoming articles and chapters including ‘Nonreligion and Europe' in The Oxford Handbook of Religion and Europe.
