Academic Profile


I am an Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC)-funded DPhil student, with the additional Advanced Quantitative Methods (AQM) stipend.

Research Interests

I am primarily interested in public opinion, political parties and voting behaviour in advanced Western democracies. Most of my research concerns why particular types of voters choose to vote for 'radical' or 'anti-system' parties, and why aggregate levels of support for those types of parties varies between time and place.
