About Me

I am a Killam Research Laureate and editor of the Canadian Journal of Sociology. As  a professor of sociology and criminology, my recent  work has been in the area of surveillance, governance, policing and risk. Aaron Doyle and I recently published the book 57 Ways to Screw Up in Graduate School, which conveys a series of professional lessons for the next generation of graduate students.


My research interests related to the study of prisons; opioids (fentanyl and carfentanyl); the social study of surveillance; the research ethics process; policing; risk, and governance.
