Leaving industry and my role as a Commercial Director in my mid 30s I achieved a BSc in Politics, Economics and Policy Making from Goldsmiths followed by a move to the London School of Economics in 2004. A master's degree in European Politics and Policy Making, and a further master's in Political Science Research (2005/6), followed. I was awarded my Ph.D., studying part-time whilst working as a consultant, in Political Science from the London School of Economics in 2012.

Before arriving at the University of Reading I held the post of research fellow at the University of Aberdeen, working on the Borderless Politics project. This focussed on the political engagement of large firms in policy making across Britain, Germany and the US. Before this I spent 3 years at the University of Salzburg undertaking post-doctoral research on the influence of interest groups in policy making. I’m a visiting scholar at the University of Stuttgart, and a member of the steering committee of the Oslo University based Party and Interest group project PAIRDEM - which conducts comparative political research across 20 established democracies.

Areas of Interest:

Policy making, British Politics, Interest representation (corporate and citizen), European politics, comparative politics, and research methods.

Research Supervision:

I supervise PhD students on a range of topics from educational inequality to the political positions of European separatist parties. At the postgraduate and undergraduate levels, I tend to supervise students on public policy related topics, interest group politics, British politics, and European Union politics.
