I’m Stuart J. Turnbull-Dugarte – an Assistant Professor in Quantitative Political Science in the Department of Politics and International Relations at the University of Southampton.

I am currently serving as Director of Postgraduate Research Programmes and am on the standing group of the Centre for Behavioural Experimental Action and Research (C-BEAR).

My research lays at the intersection of political sociology, behavioural science, party politics and electoral campaigning. I teach in the areas of quantitative methods, political psychology, and comparative European politics. 

I am very proudly a first gen student and I dedicate part of my time to mentoring other first gen students in their journey through university life.

When I am not teaching or wrangling data into a ggplot, you can normally find me either travelling, watching films from the Marvel Cinematic Universe, listening to Taylor Swift, and/or drinking a flat white or tropical IPA.
