Dr. Boyle’s research is broadly concerned with contemporary forms of security, surveillance, and social regulation in the post-9/11 city. He has held postdoctoral positions in the School of Communications at Temple University and the Global Urban Research Unit at Newcastle University, and his previous research examined security governance at the Olympic Games and other urban mega-events. He is currently working on projects on the regulation of entertainment districts and critical infrastructure resilience.
