Nicola’s research in surveillance combines interests in how new/media, technology, culture, gender and embodiment intersect in social life. She is also particularly interested in the development of methodological approaches to surveillance aligned to feminist, poststructuralist and actor-network theories, including ethnographic, visual and textual methods. Broadly, her research in Surveillance Studies has combined interests in digital technologies and mobile communications media; risk, privacy and trust; and gender and gendering in surveillance. Her research projects in Surveillance Studies have included an ESRC funded project on multimedia mobile communications; an Intel-funded project on mobile data, privacy and trust (RIS:OME); and an international collaboration on the ‘Globalization of Personal Data' with the Surveillance Project at Queens University. Further research activity has taken the form of: Membership of the Surveillance Studies Network and the editorial board of Surveillance and Society; co-editing a special issue of Surveillance and Society on ‘Gender, Sexuality and Surveillance’; acting as Rapporteur for the Royal Society on the Cybertrust consultation; acting as expert commentator in the Surveillance Society report for the UK Information Commissioner; and participating in the Everyday Life of Surveillance UK seminar series.
