Associate Dean (Research and Knowledge Exchange), University of Brighton

Daniel's research involves sociological, cultural and geographical analyses of race, ethnicity and popular culture. It is linked fundamentally by its central theme of qualitative observational research on ethnicities as lived in public cultures/spaces, and comprises explorations and critiques of the spatial dimensions of racialised inequality and resistance. His work emphasises notions of theoretical innovation, empirical originality and sociological intervention.

Daniel has written / (co-)edited eight books: British Asians and Football: Culture, Identity, Exclusion (Routledge, 2007); Race, Ethnicity and Football: Persisting Debates and Emergent Issues (Routledge, 2011); Coastal Cultures: Liminality and Leisure (Leisure Studies Association, 2014); Sport and South Asian Diasporas: Playing Through Time and Space (Routledge, 2014); Race, Place and the Seaside: Postcards from the Edge (Palgrave Macmillan, 2016); Transforming Sport: Knowledges, Practices and Structures (Routledge, 2018); Racism and English Football: For Club and Country (Routledge, 2021); and Leisure, Racism, and National Populist Politics (Routledge, 2021).
