I am Senior Lecturer in Criminology and Criminal Justice in the School of Law and Social Sciences at University of East London. My research is on racism, anti-Semitism and Islamophobia, right-wing extremism and terrorism, and hate crimes, and I have been interviewed by the BBC, CBC, LBC, The Times, Gara and Dundee Courier.

I have also contributed to Religion and Violence: An Encyclopedia of Faith and Conflict (M.E.Sharpe, 2010), Encyclopedia of American Street Crime (Sage, 2013) and several edited collections including Extremism in America (University Press Florida, 2014).
