Politics and International Relations

My research interests lie in the area of comparative politics and government, with a particular focus on the UK and EU. My work has centred around the behaviour of political parties and interest groups, examining issues related to organisation, participation and social capital. I have successfully completed projects on both the impact of electoral system design and multi-level governance.
My outputs have been published in journals such as 'Representation', 'The Political Quarterly', and the 'Australian Journal of Political Science', and also in a monograph for Routledge. I am presently a scientific partner for a study hosted by the Université Libre de Bruxelles (ULB) analysing how effectively Members of the European Parliament (MEPs) represent religious interests: http://www.releur.eu/index.html. The findings will be published in 2014, just after the European elections.

I graduated with a first class honours MA and PhD (university anniversary scholar) from the Department of Politics, University of Glasgow, and a Postgraduate Certificate in Education from the University of Strathclyde, also acting as a graduate teaching assistant in the School of Social and Political Science at the University of Edinburgh, and spending a period as a visiting researcher in the Department of Political Science, McGill University, Montreal. Prior to coming to Lancaster University, I was Course Director of the Duke University study abroad programme in Public Policy at the University of Glasgow. I have appeared as an expert witness in front of the House of Commons Political and Constitutional Reform Committee, and act as both a project reviewer and rapporteur for the Economic and Social Research Council. I won the 2008 Political Studies Association prize for the best article published in politics.
