His areas of specialization are everyday life and identity construction, media reception and audiences, cultural dimensions of globalization, social and cultural theory, and methodology of social research. In his research project "the Moderns" he develops a theoretical framework for the domestication of global trends and conducts empirical studies related to different aspects of domestication. In his other project dealing with the domestication of ubiquitous communication he is interested in the ways in which new communication technologies become routine parts of people's everyday lives and how that changes both individual lives and technology.
