Edmund's research deals with decision-making in sociologically important contexts. By contrast, he is also interested in evolutionary theories of change in which practices are selected by the social environment rather than chosen by individuals. In support of these interests, he has wide experience in research methods, particularly computer simulation but also qualitative research, social network analysis and experiments. His theoretical and methodological interests have developed in parallel with several empirical case studies on household money management, secondhand markets, adaptation of farming practices, ethnic disadvantage in labour markets and social networks in criminal activity and drug use.
