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. Mobilising supporters when the (Brexit) stakes are high: a large scale experiment on mass email lobbying. – with Joshua Townsley, Florian Foos & Denise Baron.
2. Snap elections increase political trust: a quasi-experiment from the UK.
3. Sexuality and the city: The geography of LGBT political participation in the United States. – with Jack Thompson
I’m always free for a coffee or beer so feel free to drop me an email:
