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 academic work can be found in journals such as the Journal of European Public Policy, European Journal of Political ResearchWest European Politics, and European Union Politics amongst others.

Some of the excellent people I have co-authored with include Joshua Townsley, Daniel Devine, Florian Foos, José Rama and Andrés Santana.
