Personal profile

I am a PhD candidate with a research interest in electoral studies and political behaviour. My thesis looks at assessing the age gap in UK partisanship and the relative influence of generational differences, changes in values, later maturation, and party appeals. Broader research interests include national populism and migration studies. 

Prior to starting my PhD I completed a BA degree in International Relations at Royal Holloway and an MSc degree in Social Research Methods at the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE).

Part of my research has further contributed to projects in the charity sector, including a report commissioned by the Joseph Rowntree Foundation and a series of tutorials for The Brilliant Club, a university-access charity.

In 2019/2020 and in 2020/2021, I run seminars for the Royal Holloway second year undergraduate course "PR2000 - Researching Politics and International Relations: Analysis, Design and Practice", where students have the opportunity to explore a number of research methods, from design to data analysis.
