Personal profile

Personal Statement

I'm a Senior Lecturer (Associate Professor) in Political Science at the School of Government & Public Policy, which I joined as a Chancellor's Fellow in 2017. Before moving to Glasgow, I was a Max Weber Fellow at the European University Institute in Florence and a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Copenhagen. I hold a DPhil from the University of Oxford (Nuffield College).

My research focuses on political representation, behaviour, and attitudes. I use quantitative methods, including survey data analysis and survey experiments, to study how well public policy reflects the preferences of citizens, what explains differences in representation between different social groups and countries, and how it affects individuals' attitudes towards the political system. I am currently working on several projects about the representation of disabled people in politics, including my ESRC New Investigator Project "How do voters perceive disabled polilticians?".

My research has been published in the British Journal of Political ScienceComparative Political StudiesEuropean Journal of Political Research, Political Behavior, European Political Science ReviewElectoral Studies, and Journal of Elections, Public Opinion and Parties, amongst others.

I teach Quantitative Methods at the postgraduate level.
