Daniel is a criminologist/sociologist with an interest in gender and gender-based violence, masculinity, sport sociology, and the sociology of law. His interdisciplinary academic background includes formal training in law, sport management, criminology and sociology.
More specifically, his research agenda includes study of how social structures, institutions and culture shape deviant and criminal behaviour, as well as how gender, race, class and sexuality impact outcomes in the criminal justice system and the social construction of crime. This has led to projects looking at cultural backlash against socially progressive changes in sport and in society, masculinity and cancel culture on Twitter, and the construction of victimhood in victim impact statements, with a particular focus on how gender, race and class influence presentations of victimhood in cases of domestic violence, sexual violence, and homicide.
