My research is mainly on the politics, aesthetics and social relations around global(izing) surveillance, risk and security. I generally work cross-culturally and comparatively in global / world cities in Japan, Brazil and Europe. I also study science fiction writing and film. Theoretically, I am particularly interested in process philosophy, actor-network theory, post-panopticism, and concepts of openness / closure, transparency / opacity, and publicity / privacy.
I am Editor-in-Chief of the open-access journal of surveillance studies,
Surveillance & Society
and a member of the Surveillance Studies Centre.
