My work covers two domains:

1) the current far right spanning from non-violent to violent, as well as partially overlapping phenomena such as the involuntary celibacy (incel) and school shooting/mass murder subcultures

2) dynamics of polarization at the mass level and its potential consequences in the form of intolerance and support for violence.
