People in the Department of Sociology and Criminology

About our community

We are a well-established, vibrant and multi-disciplinary department, comprised of caring and highly engaging community of support staff, academics, undergraduate and PhD students. Our academics are passionate about teaching and researching real world issues and topics. Each member of the team has unique and compelling research specialisms, ranging from social class, health care, policing, ethnic relations, migration, social entrepreneurship as well as counter terrorism, advertising and employability.  

Some members of our team have also produced academic publications but offer academic insights to more mainstream audiences such as Made in Bradford, The Invisible Village, Race, Taste, Class and Cars.
