My research field is on the social contexts of alcohol and drug use, and is situated within the perspectives of youth research, criminology, space and urban studies, and cultural sociology. It involves studies on youth culture, specific drug markets including darkweb/cryptomarkets, student population drug and alcohol use, night time economy regulation and use as well as studies in prevention. I am part of the Culture and Civil Society researcher group.


Demant runs the Microsociology of Online Deviance lab, where we runs two research projects. We invite master students to work on our data and with our ethical protocols, data structure etc. See mere here
