Personal profile

Personal Statement

I joined the school of Government and Public Policy at Strathclyde on May 2017. Previously I held posts at the University of Pittsburgh, University of Warwick and Duke.

My research is synthetic and problem driven. It spans comparative political systems, political parties, executives, ministerial careers, comparative and international political economy and the politics of welfare state reform. I explore and theorise the process of policy-making in parliamentary democracies. Some of the questions I address in my work are: Do individual politicians make a difference for policy? Do parties’ electoral promises shape policy in multiparty cabinets? Why are some countries better able to reform their pension and tax system than others?
