I joined the Department of Politics in September 2017, having finished my ESRC-funded PhD thesis at Queen Mary University of London. My thesis examined the causes of Conservative decline in Liverpool, and I am currently working on developing this into a multi-volume political history of the city, dating back to the 18th century.
My other research interests include political campaigning, the role of localised identities and their electoral salience, electoral patterns, and British politics more broadly. I am quantitatively trained and have had statistical work published in a range of leading journals such as BJPIR and JCMS. I am happy to supervise students with research plans within these broad areas.
