Welcome to my website!
I am an Assistant Professor (Lecturer) in Political Science in the Department of Politics & International Relations at the University of Southampton.
I work in comparative politics with a general interest in political sociology and political party competition. I have a number of peer-reviewed publications focused on election campaigns, political behaviour, public opinion and party competition.
My latest working papers:
1. Homonegative attitudes after Obergefell v. Hodges. Quasi-experimental evidence of anticipatory backlash from Israel.
2. Mobilising supporters when the (Brexit) stakes are high: a large scale experiment on mass email lobbying. – with Joshua Townsley, Florian Foos & Denise Baron.
3. Health over wealth: Explaining the sexuality gap in public policy preferences towards Covid-19. – with James Dennison and Joshua Townsley.
4. When the US far-right sneezes, the European far-right catches a cold. Quasi-experimental evidence of electoral contagion from Spain – with José Rama.
I’m always free for a coffee or beer so feel free to drop me an email:
